More like C.A.T.S. for (and taking partly from my Fleetmate's post above):
Catian Attack Transport Ship
Formerly known as Armsman from June 2008 to June 20, 2012

I thought there planet's name was Cait, was it not?
C.M.S. - Caitian Military Ship
But their original home world was the Ferasan's (who are supposed to be the Kzinti, but can't use that name due to legal issues).
The story is told throughout the Caitain and Ferasan Doff chains, on the Fed and KDF sides respectively.

Actually, it's United Star Ship: Earth was unified at the time that indentification was thought up. The same way I.S.S is called Imperal Star Ship
Was named Trek17, but still an author.
Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'. I have nothing against the game/devs, nor any particular wish to talk bad about either, or praise most decisions. Still, it's better to be positive than cynical.
