Cryptic held a contest to develop names for three ship classifications in its upcoming Star Trek Online
MMO, and the winners have been announced. The winners get the game and a special in-game title for their characters.
Winners (not identified in the announcement) get the game's Digital Deluxe Edition and the in-game title "Utopia Planetia Staff." So if you bump into someone with that, you know they helped name the ships. Obviously, some names were submitted by more than one person, so there are more than three winners.
Ship Name Winners
Here are the ships, identified as Tier 5 vessels:
- Tier 5 Star Cruiser
Emissary Class Star Cruisers are the most advanced Cruisers in Starfleet. Generally the largest, most resilient ships in Starfleet, they have massive warp cores, which generate surplus power for subsystems. And they have large crew complements, which improves repair rate and other crew abilities.
LENGTH: 724m | DRAFT: 90m | BEAM: 255m
-Tier 5 Fleet Escort
Dervish Class Escorts are small, which means they don't have room for extensive engineering or science facilities. But, their weaponry, speed and maneuverability make them hard to hit threats in any engagement. The Dervish is arguably the toughest Escort in Starfleet.
LENGTH: 390m | DRAFT: 70m | BEAM: 306m
-Tier 5 Science Vessel
Science Vessels have the most advanced technology in Starfleet. Destiny Class vessels are larger than most Science Vessels. They can accommodate a larger crew and advanced engineering facilities to support the ship when on extended missions.
LENGTH: 554m | DRAFT: 98m | BEAM: 211m
