That's exactly why we should it it now.
All this sillyness with the s,t,u,v,w,x,y,z.......

It really has to end...It was supposed to be based on the Greek alpha bet....Alpha Beta Delta Gamma...

Remember...Star Trek 6. "You are cleared to deliver Captain Kirk and Party to NCC-1701-Alpha....We've really taken it kinda far...I relly don't want to go into f, g,h,i,j....

It's just....really stupid to carry it on that far...just start over...

That doesn't necessarily mean anything. Saying Alpha is just a way of saying A clearly, phonetic alphabets. Alpha bravo charlie delta echo foxtrot golf etc.

It is odd that we've never seen another ship with a letter tagged on the end of the registry. I suppose it's because the other ships that use names that have been used before use different registry numbers, while the Enterprise has always had the 1701 registry for tradition's sake.

The Federation isn't going to go by the American Miltiary phonetic Alpha bet, Doctor...
It's different for the American Police , different from the the British phonetic alphabet and so on and so on.

So if we keep using them down the alphabet there will have been no reason to use..."alpha" in that movie.

That was just an example. I didn't mean they'd be using it exactly, just a phonetic alphabet in general.

But even so, Crusher's authorization code to self destruct the Enterprise in First Contact was "Crusher-2-2-Beta-Charlie", and Worf's had an Echo in there.

Touche' Doctor.....

Nonetheless...If we're going to refer to the Ambassador Class Enterprise as NCC-1701 Charlie....J as Juliet *shakes head* We're really in trouble.

Hah. I hadn't thought of it that way. What interesting nicknames those would be.

Shame on you Trekkie for knowing Crusher's destruct code.
(I only know Kirks from Star Trek III. Code: Zero, Zero,Zero, Destruct, Zero)

How about a TREK that takes place during the TOS timeline, but on another Constitution Class vessel like the Lexington or the Yorktown?

Or one set right after Voyager were you could have recurring roles by cast members from TNG, DS9 and VOY? I'm still into the idea of a series based on the ST: TITAN or ST: EXCALIBUR novels.....

Speaking of another TOS Trek, I've always wanted to see a series set during the Romulan War.
