Sent from station 01-001 and received by station 01-017

That's how I read it anyway.

Oh, how dumb of me! You're right! I kept thinking STN as in Star Trek Nemesis.

It's possible that it meant that too, they put all kinds of little jokes in those things

I thought it was equivalent to the station reference, as in console reference. With the Captain's being implied to be the most important his would be 1.

I wonder if starships come with a free data bundle and text allowance though?

If the consoles are on the same network I should think messages between will be free.

Roaming charges on their communicators must be murder!

I guess messages sent long distance to other networks, like Romulus, aren't covered!
