So here's a short list, and some images of the ships.
Nebula Class San Francisco Type
Nebula Class Rigel Type
I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum board, but I didn't see a forum board to post suggestions like this. Some of these ships I don't know if they've been posted or not, some of them are ships that have been seen in the TV/movies, and the rest are fan designed, but all of them are ships I'd love to see in Star Trek Online as either a stand alone player controlled ship or a ship costume.
If you feel I've left out some designs/ships, please feel free to point them out, I enjoy looking at star trek designs, tho I'm not a big fan of TOS era designs, I like sleek.
Sadly, most of if not everything you've suggested has been suggested before, and has been marked as off-limits for licensing reasons. Other games are verboten, I think, since it's the game publishers that hold the license to the original ship designs and not CBS.
That said, I don't see why STO couldn't make uncannily similar "tributes" to those ships in the form of skins or refits. Before the canon-design Steamrunner came online the Heavy Escort had Zephyr skin, and those who loved the Norway-class have to make do with the Oslo, and so forth.
