Re: Matt Jefferies and NCC-1017

I think the assumption that they used decals stems solely from the lack of imagination in the numbers used, being simply rearranged from the Enterprise's registry out of the model kit. If it was done manually, in pencil or ink or whatever, why not come up with some different numbers then? Maybe it's coincidence, but then again, as the OP said, there doesn't seem to be any first-hand information on how this thing was made, so we will likely never know.
