Default Enterprise Shuttles Question

Ok I tried to search this to make sure it wasn't already addressed, but didn't see anything, and its hard now to keep up with all the treads, so many new and duplicates, I can't read every one. Hope this isn't a dup too!!

Anyway, I noticed when doing a frame by frame look at the trailer - yeah, I know Im crazy like that, I saw on the shuttles the ships registry number, and after it I see something that I can't tell if its an A or the starfleet symbol. It kinda looks like NCC 1701 A but then again it could just be NCC 1701 and the symbol but its too straight edged to be the symbol - I think. Can any better eyes out there tell? I viewed it at 1080p HD so its the best I can see.

hmmm, when you look the full size version, it doesn't match the symbol on the drum right in font of the shuttle.

I like the new design as well. A much bigger TOS shuttle makes perfect sense to me.

Much more believable as well, TNG had some bad shuttles

It's not an A or a r...It looks like a symbol but it doesn't look like the Star Fleet symbol.

I think it's an Enterprise/Starfleet insignia, but I suppose it could also be a Delta.

Hard to tell. Could be the standard insignia with a large looping splash at the bottom?
