Yes. As bizarre as it may seem for ME to help get a thread back on topic, it does seem odd that, having started with a coupla lists of names from Justman and Fontana, and the list of registries from "Court Martial" (from a film loop he managed to obtain! Ah, 'tis quaint. . .), he then puts them together by a convoluted but logical method, and finishes off with a huge list which leaves out several of the more unusual naming choices in favour of Tashik-Sotra, which comes out of nowehere.
Ruth Berman either made it up specifically for that list or included it from some fanfic that either she or an acquaintance had written. See where she says:

And she's from crazy-town. As illustrated above.
So forgive my ignorance about what precisely we are discussing here, but are we conjecturing about the size of star fleet at the time of "Court Martial"? (i.e. 12 starships) Twelve is a larger number than you think it is. Or is this merely the number of Constitution class ships (where there would be a bunch of more rinky-dink ships too)?
