Visigoth, A-F so far. She's been everything from a Defiant to a (I think) Miranda to a mirror escort and beyond. I was going to name my Atrox the 'Obelisk', but I went for the Kumari escort instead so the Visigoth handle lives on.
90% because 'visigoth' sounds cool.
But also it's a reference to asymmetrical warfare and winning against the odds, the Visigoths being a people that helped take down the Roman empire. The Visigoth's captain is an SI operative who finds Starfleet ethical guidelines most often just get in the way. She likes to think of herself as the underdog, alone behind enemy lines, doing what it takes to get it done.
