The Engle-class was identified via the T'Plana-Hath by designer John Eaves. [1] Eaves also named the class, which was later confirmed [2] after being revealed on StarTrek.com.

In the article "DISCOVERY's 'Battle of the Binary Stars' Armada Identified" by Ken Reilly at TrekCore, this class was "likely named for test pilot and eventual astronaut Joe Engle, who test-flew the joint NASA-Air Force X-15 rocket airplane – and the space shuttle Enterprise – before eventually commanding the space shuttle Columbia." [3]

According to Star Trek: Shipyards - Starfleet Ships 2151-2293 (p. 189), the USS Earhart was an Engle-class ship.
