Re: USS Copernicus, NCC-640 or 623?

Perhaps the registry was to be carried over, with an eventual letter or perhaps a II after the name (something FASA was fond of doing)? I know some sources would argue that this sort of honor was only ever given to the Enterprise, but on a personal level I'm not sure it wouldn't extend to other vessels as well.

I was never really comfortable with a lot of the TNG era Excelsior numbers, to be honest, as very few of them ever actually fell within the 2xxx range. If they're intended to represent some sort of chronological number of the ship being built or commissioned, they just seem way off.
