So here's a short list, and some images of the ships.

Monsoon Class
Valkyrie MKIII
Remore Class
Avalon Class
Phalanx Class
Nebula Class San Francisco Type
Nebula Class Rigel Type

Proteus Class
Argonaut Class
Hayden Class
Courageous Class
Achilles Class
USS Yeager
Dauntless Class

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.
