I can make out five definitely, maybe six, though the sixth I'm not completely sure about.

EDIT: Just checked out an enlarged version, make that definitely six now.

I don't know how many Birds of Prey that I can definitely see; but I definitely see one dead Drake coming right up.

During the brief Federation-Klingon War in 2373, the Drake and the USS Armstrong were ambushed by a Klingon battle group and both ships suffered heavy casualties before escaping to Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Apocalypse Rising")

This was my entry into the Ships of the Line calendar contest, in which fans were invited to visually define a [placeholder here] bit of Trek lore. (I didn't win.)

I've only got 10. That means I'm missing 2, right?

Almost. 12 is a little closer to 11. They actually overlap.

If you look carefully you can see a little bit of red engine glow.
