Re: Ray's TAS shuttlecraft...

hmm... yes, I see what you're saying. it just seems rather strange to me to paint it in huge letters on the side of the ship if it essentially goes without saying that it's NCC. why not simply slap an "X" (or whatever specific type) on the side of those special cases that aren't? I must admit though, your idea of "navigational contact code" works a lot better than the oft quoted "naval construction contract" (why would you have a naval contract for a civilian freighter?)

anyway, thanks for your thoughts, I'll shut up now and stop derailing the thread
