The USS Vengeance
Today the official Star Trek app has a mission to scan an image from the official Star Trek Facebook page, which reveals the new USS Vengeance ship. This is the same ship that is also described as a "Dreadnought-class" in Star Trek Into Darkness. And here it is (in high res).

A look inside the USS Vengeance
The USS Vengeance is the ship that TrekMovie has been spotting in the various trailers and commercials and publicity photos. There has actually been quite a lot of imagery release from the interior of this ship.
Star Trek Into Darkness could have been ‘Star Trek Vengeance’ (and is in Russia)
This is not the first time the term "Vengeance" has come up in relation to the movie. Of course we have heard Benedict Cumberbatch’s dialog as John Harrison say "I have returned to have my vengeance." But if you recall back in December TrekMovie reported that one of the titles that was considered (and tested) for the new movie was "Star Trek: Vengeance." And in fact "Star Trek Vengeance" is the English translation of the title being used in Russia (even though all other foreign markets chose variations on the "Into Darkness" title.
"Star Trek: Vengeance" (Russia’s title for "Into Darkness")
Real Vengeances and non-canon Trek Vengeances
The United States Navy has had two ships with the name Vengeance. One was a former merchant ship that served under the command of John Paul Jones in the Revolutionary War. and the other was used as a "bomb ketch" against the Barbary pirates in the early 19th century. The Royal Navy has had eight ships bearing the name HMS Vengeance dating back to the 18th century. The latest is a Vanguard-class nuclear submarine launched in 1998 and still in service.
A Constitution-class refit (same as TOS movie era USS Enterprise) USS Vengeance was used in the "Klingon Academy" game released in 2000. Also the FASA Star Trek: The Role Playing game featured a Miranda-class (same as USS Reliant from Star Trek II) ship named USS Vengeance.
