I think Quasar would be better than destiny, and I don't think Dervish was the best name.

I'm still partial to the name I submitted for the Escort: Thresher

Seemed appropriate to name it after a shark. I shall use it as my ship name instead.

Emissary is a great name, Im cool with that one. The other two are awful though, one doesnt fit at all and the other is extremely cliche. I think my suggestions were better for those 2.

Escort - Vigilence class

Science - Darwin class

They already have a "vigilant" class, do you really think "vigilence" would have been chosen? Its not even a word.

Who supports me in filing a petition to fire the people responsible for allowing the Tier 5 Escort "Dervish"??? I mean, who in their right mind woke up one day and said hey, think we'll start designs on this awesome Dervish Class??? Please, wake the hell up and quit drinking the grape cool-aid, Cryptic.

I dont know with this being set in the middle of a war with the klingons you name your new cruiser class Emiisary and your new escort class Dervish? You think maybe something with alittle more teeth would have been appropriate.Who cares about the new science vessel name its a science vessel.

Congratulations to those that won, but seriously, Dervish class? That doesn't really fit that much for a name of an Escort vessel, but I do like the names of the other two classes of starships.

I don't mind the names too much, and congrads to the winners, but...

As other have noted, Dervish is related to the Mawlawi order. These dervishes are known toe whirl around as a form of meditation. This is why they're sometimes called 'whirling Dervishes'. However, modern gaming has used the term to refer to berserker-type warriors. But this is incorrect.

I'm also not fond of the science ship's name. It strikes me as overly corny, and isn't exactly related to science at all.

Although I do not suggest that the winner's prizes be revoked, it would be nice if we could have just voted as a community on which names we felt were best. The top 5 for each ship class could be picked, and the voting could have lasted to monday, with the wininng name being the one picked.

ugh Destiny not my idea but hey I guess I'm just being biased
I was leaning toward Expedition for the DSSV for the Cruiser I put Centaurian and a humble bow to the winner there I like the sound of EMISSARY Class .Not to sure about Dervish I put Viking in myself but wasnt sure about it either. lol but Destiny hmm just sounds a little flamboyant I reckon .Oh well gratz to the winners will Target you in sector space and send you a gift of my own lol
