It is curious that the buoy used in the Klingon training missions is classed as a Romulan vessel (and a Dreadnaught at that!). A leftover from the exchange of technologies between the two empires as seen in the original Star Trek series.

This hidden list of ships is not completely random, though. There are nods to earlier, non-canon versions of Star Trek, including RPG's and unofficial books. Of course, it's not as simple as that, because a number of unofficial ship designs have been seen on the background monitors in some of the films, including that of the much-disputed Dreadnought..

So here's a list of what seems to be inspired by what:

Federation

Name only:

Northampton (FASA RPG)
Saladin (Starfleet Technical Manual)
Remora (FASA)
Larson (FASA)

The design of the Federation frigate was seemingly based on the USS Jupp, and was also seen in the DS9 Technical Manual.
Was the destroyer based on the Ptolemy class from the Starfleet Technical Manual?
An earlier version of the Dreadnought was seen in the Starfleet Technical Manual.

Klingon

Name only:

Little Killer (FASA)
Swiftwind (FASA)
Ever-Victorious (FASA)
Throne Seeker (FASA)

Romulan

Name only:

Starglider (FASA)
Stormbird (FASA)
Gallant Wing (FASA)
Whitewind (FASA)
Wind Carrier (FASA)
Nightwing (FASA)

The Romulan light cruiser resembled the Bird of Prey seen in the Enterprise TV series.

Gorn

Some similarities between the Gorn ships in STTA and FASA, especially the FASA destroyer.

So, it seems the developers of STTA were fans of these earlier versions of Trek (see Star Trek Legacy as well). But with one of the writers from the original series doing the script for the game, that shouldn't be a surprise.
