I'm not thrilled about it either (actually, I'm not thrilled at all that Eaves is even designing the ships), but look at it this way: If Eaves wasn't the one making up the names and classes, then we probably wouldn't have any at all. This kind of stuff just doesn't seem important to most people who are producing Trek these days.

According to Facebook, Eaves assigned a class and registry to every ship mentioned, but it seems up to startrek.com to release this information.

Registries for Discovery, Glenn and Shenzou were not chosen by him, but all other registries are supposed to be chronological.

He also said, that the class names are more diverse, it just so happens that we only got to see the ones named after pilots/astronaus so far.

Yeah, I really miss Doug, Mike, & Rick.

If anyone here understands diversity of ship names & classes, it's me. But goddamn, Wikipedia alone provides better options for Earth-based naming (& yes, I WOULD like more non-human names other than the couple of token throwaways we get).

Just like how it’s spelled, silly.

Really like most of the designs, but the Magee class USS Shran just looks odd and off-balanced to me.

The only ones I like are Shenzhou, Kerala, & Yeager. Everything else is shite.

Geez, I think I have to reconsider getting an abo. I would really like to have the Starfleet ships (sans Discovery) but what the hell am I going to do with these "Klingon" monstrosities. I'm too lazy to put them on eBay, my storage space is limited and there's no way in hell I'm going to display them on a shelf.

So, updating my shiplist... we (or at least I) don't know:

- What class the Buran, Cooper, Earhart, Muroc or Sioux are?
- The registries for Buran, Cooper, Dana, Earhart, Hoover, Muroc, Ride, or Sioux?

(that is, I know Buran and Cooper at least are mention-only ships, probably some of the others are, so we may never know. But sometimes (like via the ST website) you get extra info)
