I said it before and I'll say it again. I don't see why the Constellation's registry number is a problem. So it's 1017. So what? The only other canonical Connie registry we see in TOS and could compare it to is the Enterprise's. All that tells me is that the Constellation is the same class as the Enterprise, but may have been built earlier if registry numbers are supposed to be chronological.
This is pretty much where I'm at as far as the Constellation registry goes. A contemporary of the Enterprise just built earlier.
And as it was the prototype of that class, it might have taken a while following constrction to iron out any flaws which appeared during shakedown. Once those had been ironed out and the class entered full production the registry numbers could have gone from where the Consetellation was to where the Enteprise was registry wise.
