As per recent revelations at Memory Alpha's Sabre page, it has been discovered and referenced that the ship's designer/creator calls it the Sabre class, NOT the Saber class. The aticle can be found here, at Doug Drexler's web page/blog.
I'm not altering all this right away so as to give time for discussion first, if any is felt necessary. Commander, Starbase 23 04:25, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

- Looks like this supposed 'revelation' amounts to a whole lot of nothing. You were right not to edit. The 'Sabre' class name is definitely in the minority. -- Captain MKB 05:22, June 2, 2010 (UTC)
- It's a difference in American versus British spelling. Which is what it appears the M-A discussion has been touching on, although it does point out several sources using the "-er" version. Looks like an interesting discussion to follow. --Savar 15:03, June 2, 2010 (UTC)
- As with MA, we default to American English in most cases, because Star Trek is an American creation. The canon designers' intentions could in fact be used to influence our writing, but not when overridden by such a large variety of other sources. - Captain MKB 19:21, June 2, 2010 (UTC)
- To reiterate my 2010 comment, "the producer/writer/creator/showrunner said it" is not a valid citation. Valid sources for information to be contributed to this article are (in no particular order) the published works Last Unicorn RPG module: The Price of Freedom, Decipher RPG module: Starfleet Operations Manual, DS9 reference: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual, and so on as the Saber has appeared in publications and canon, such as TNG movie: First Contact. -- Captain MKB 11:07, February 23, 2013 (UTC)
