Re: The Kelvin's uniforms

I could see Starfleet thinking "we'll have more ships than nine!" when giving the registries to the Enterprise and the Columbia, but correspondingly not thinking "we'll have more ships than 999!" when registering the Grissom...

Then again, if people don't like the idea of NCC-0514, they can always say the Kelvin is NCC-O514. No character on screen is likely to pronounce the "zero" or "ough" anyway, so the verbal form of registry will still be simple 514; whether one adds the TAS-style definer "O for Observation" would be a matter of personal preference, and perhaps George Kirk doesn't prefer to.
