USS Valkyrie:
"Words build bridges into unexplored regions"

I named the ship for the plot to kill Hitler, so couldn't think of a more apt quote, given Starfleet's charter, and the literary nature of the ships existence

[Edit to add]
After 15 years of writing about the USS Endeavour, I figured I ought to have some words for its dedication plaque as well...

"The truth is not for all men, but only for those who seek it" - Ayn Rand

Ships commanded by Alyosha Strannik (Devidian, raised on Earth in St. Petersburg, Russia)

USS Chin'toka (Advanced Escort):

"In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations."
― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956

(I felt this fits for an escort because it puts a focus on its offensive efforts.)

USS Chalcedon (Vesta)

"Filled with rapture, his soul yearned for freedom, space, vastness. Over him the heavenly dome, full of quiet, shining stars, hung boundlessly. From the zenith to the horizon the still-dim Milky Way stretched its double strand. Night, fresh and quiet, almost unstirring, enveloped the earth. The white towers and golden domes of the church gleamed in the sapphire sky. The luxuriant autumn asleep till morning. The silence of the earth seemed to merge with the silence of the heavens and the mystery of the earth touched the mystery of the stars."
― Fyodor Dostoevsky

(Yes, it's a long one, but I think it fits a science vessel.)

I'm not sure yet what the dedication plaques for the ships commanded by my Cardassian sci are yet...

Oh well.

USS Tiburon, NCC-68636, Akira-class heavy escort carrier, V. Adm. Jesu LaRoca commanding: "It is good that we do not have to try to kill the sun or the moon or the stars. It is enough to live on the sea and kill our true brothers." - Ernest Hemigway, The Old Man and the Sea, 1951

USS Megalodon, NCC-94768, Odyssey-class tactical super-cruiser, flagship of V. Adm. Jesu LaRoca: "Engage the enemy more closely" - Fighting Instructions for His Majesty's Ships, Signal XVI, ca. 1805

Hmm. Necro thread, but what the heck.

U.S.S. Red Dawn
Nemo vir est qui mundum non reddat meliorem
"What man is a man who does not make the world better?"
(From the film Kingdom of Heaven.)

U.S.S Hammer of Dawn (This is what I'm going to name my Tholian Recluse once I get it.)

"Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright, that God may love thee. Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong; that is your oath." (Again, from the film Kingdom of Heaven.)

U.S.S Red October

You are not what you were born, but what you have it in yourself to be.
(Yet again, Kingdom of Heaven.)

U.S.S. Masquerade.
N.C.C. 81393 (reads 98133 ingame)

"The Universe Unfolds."

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.
