I don't think you can say that with certainty. We don't know what the INTREPID looked like. Perhaps it's actually the USS Kyi'i or whatever the Vulcan word which means intrepid/brave/valiant.
As far as the rest goes, the Klingons in TUC did complain about the Federation being a homo sapiens only club.
