surely it'd be better to commerate Everest being succesfully scaled the first time with NCC 52953 or 29553
I thought about that, but I admit I had the disaster fresh in my mind because I'd just watched the IMAX film about it. If it's a better idea to celebrate a successful summit, then that's fine.

Perhaps those dates you mentioned would be better attached to the actual names of the climbers? USS Edmund Hillary, USS Tenzing Norgay...

(if there were to be a ship named after Hillary, I got a great motto for the dedication plaque: "Well, George, we knocked the bastard off." )
