ENT era: Y-class cargo freighter, ECS Mychal Judge. ECS-51133. In this case, it's his birth date. Probably ships like this didn't actually have registries this high, but I say, #)(%* that. Besides, I can't think of any other number to use that didn't shamelessly evoke 9/11.
How about 533 (May 1933) or 115 (May 11th)?

If you wanted to go really low you could do 91 (September 2001) or 20 (9+11)?
Like I said, I would prefer not to involve 9/11 at all - i.e. not use any registry number that contained it.

533 is a good idea, though. So I'll go with that.
