I appreciate this list, David. The references will be put into the list
I maintain and, hopefully, it will reduce the re-occurance of similar
questions in the future.

My thanks to you, and to John and Karen as well.

Hood: I'm writing a continuing story. One of the minor points involved
blowing up the Hood. Looks like I have a rewrite :)

Tien An Men: In The Cards (DS9) suggested that the ship was missing
near the border. I assume that they have it back. Above mentioned
story involved the Dominion picking up the Tien An Mien and taking it
intact. Now, I'm going to have to write a retake, and maybe the rescue
of her crew ;)

And that Akira-class ship that got torched by Dominion forces at
Chin'toka? I think that one got left off the list...

Yes please! I'm sure we'd all like to find out Thunderchild's sister
ships names and numbers!

I paused my VCR and looked at the Excelsior flying by the screen and the
name looked like USS Montana, NCC-43308) I came to that when I saw the
last part on the letters and seen (tana), I don't think they have a ship
called the Katana. SO I figured it was Montana. Look closely and you'll
see what I mean.

The Akira did not receive a registry number.
