I know, which is what's so out of place to me about it unless it's a shout out to a friend/family member. I would think if it was a reference to the carrier, that'd tack her hull number onto a starship or shuttle not a torpedo.
Not a lot of opportunities for people to spot the number on the hull of a ship or a shuttle. You often don't get close enough to see text on a ship unless it's a battle scene and shuttles are usually in a crowded hangar scene, so it's hard for people to even pick out the text that's on those things.
