how long do you think it will take before someone of Muslim religion comes here and screams hate crime on our dislike of the name Dervish for a class name?

Maybe they thought there wasn't enough muslim culture representation in Star Trek. Now, we must all pay for it with silly names and cliches.

QFT

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.

Lol, we already had this conversation. It will be about half an hour, imo. And odds are, it won't be a real Muslim. Also, odds are that we won't care, hehe.

Yeah, all we care about is the name of some ship in a game.

The odds that we won't care are astronomical.

Even Wikipedia doesn't know why this name would apply to an escort ship. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dervish checkout the bottom of the page where it references STO

If anything I would guess they would take offense to the complete missuse of this name.

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.
