These names do not fit the naming pattern of these class of ships. The fleet escorts are named after Greek mythology (ie. Prometheus, Phoenix, Cerberus) . The deep space science ships are named after navigational beacons (ie. Luna, Sol, Polaris). I thought one of the criteria for winning was supposed to be creativity, not nonsense!. "Dervish" and "Destiny" ??? What were you thinking, Cryptic?
Couldn't agree more. The ship names really don't appeal to me at all. Especially the Destiny class for science vessel. The others I can live with....but Destiny? Ug.
Not complaining because any of my my suggestions weren't picked (really, im not ) . But the names with the possible exception of Dervish are just too generic, imo. And about the name Dervish... its not really traditionally
militant, unlike the Saber, Defiant and Akira classes.
