A couple of shots of the shattered Constitution Class USS Constellation (NCC-1017), from the remastered version of the TOS episode ‘The Doomsday Machine’.

I realise the real reason they gave the Constellation the registry number of 1017 … a simple re-working of 1701. But this is an example of why I find the registry system so frustrating. Surely, with a low number as 1017, the Constellation is named after another ship. So, why isn’t it the 1017-A, or 1017-B?
