I like that vessel, Starfleet could have adopted that design to be used with Federation technology.
I think at the Battle of Procyron (ENT: Azati Prime) we had a glimpse of a Dauntless Class ship participating.

With the specs and sensor data that Voyager brought home, Starfleet easily could have made a replica of that ship, and if it's only for the looks.
I think it would be great as somekind of Excelsior Costume.
(I really hate the Excelsiors looks)

Live long and prosper.

Hang on. Wasn't the Dauntless a fake ship made up by some guy who's only contact with the Federation was the USS Voyager?

Yes, the Dauntless was not truly a Federation ship. Memory Alpha link for the ship itself. Link for the ship-class. It did appear in an episode of ENT, as mentioned above (also mentioned in ship-class link), but that was (lore reasoning) an alternate timeline and (technical reasoning) they were reusing a lot of other ship classes in that battle, including known ships of other races for the Sphere Builders (see the link for the specific episode).

Ya.... No, the Dauntless was a bad idea. Plus, the things, what, a third the size of an Intrepid? What would it be? Its tiny, lightly armed and armored, (did it even HAVE weapons) and not even originally federation. I seriously doubt such a ship would be copied and used by the federation.

And it can't even be the Slipstream Prototype platform, since we're getting the Vesta in S5.

"Alternate timelines" is never a reason not to use a ship in STO. Perfect example: The Dreadnought. The only time we've ever seen the Galaxy-X was in the Q-created alternate universe of AGT, yet it's in-game.

So if that's your only reason, then there really is no reason not to.

The Dauntless wasn't a Federation Starship. It was a starship of Species 116. [spoiler]It was disguised using particle synthesis to trick the Voyager crew to come aboard and be assimilated in retribution for accidentally causing Species 116 to be assimilated.[/spoiler]

Notice, among other issues, the registry: NX-01-A. The only way it could be NX-01-A would be if it was an Enterprise. Plus, how could Starfleet consciously use a ship designed by a race that was destroyed by the Borg? "Oh, you're all dead or Borg. We'll just take this ship design off your hands."

NOW, this is not to say that I don't support the concept. The D'Kyr isn't a Federation Starship. It's Vulcan. I rather like the idea, especially if it granted a speed boost to the Quantum Slipstream power. So conceptually, it's a shaky concept, but I'm still for it. Even if it DOES look like a fish.
