Maybe because the previous one had another number, like Archer's.

^Yeah, the whole practice of reusing a registration number with a letter after it is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a normal one. Frankly it doesn't make a damn bit of sense to use it at all. The purpose of a registration number is different from the purpose of a name; a number should go with a specific, unique ship, not with a particular name assigned to different ships. In fact, I think there are cases in real life where the same ship has had its number changed after a refit or on a new mission while keeping the same name.

So there's no sensible reason why every ship named Enterprise should be associated with the specific number NCC-1701. That's just a silly conceit that the makers of The Voyage Home threw in for nostalgia's sake and that the makers of TNG unfortunately followed suit with. In-universe, it was supposedly done to pay tribute to the great accomplishments of Kirk and his Enterprise crew, so it was meant to be specific to that ship and its successors -- though there have been occasional references to the practice being used with other ship names in the 24th century, mainly in the tie-ins. (And when the Sao Paulo was renamed Defiant to replace the original one near the end of DS9, it got the same registry number without a letter appended, but that was just because the producers wanted to save money by reusing the existing digital model and stock footage of the Defiant.) So there's no reason why any prior ships named Enterprise would reuse the same registry number with letters appended.

Likely his daughter, wife or half-sister. Not sure he was old enough to have an adult daughter?

Well I thought it was pretty clever. I remember watching the TNG episode "Where Silence has Lease" and noticed how the Yamato had a registration number with an E at the end. Since it was a galaxy class ship, I always thought that the line of starships named the Yamato must have dated back earlier than the Enterprise. I was disappointed when they changed the registry from subsequent episodes because I always enjoyed little details like a letter telling you a lot about a ship's lineage.

YES. daughter is good. He looked old enough to me in TOS to have one.

Who wants to bet Greg Grunberg shows up as Harry in the movie?

Re: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS 5-page preview

What if Mudd found the Botany Bay and is trying to sell some augment cryo pods? By the end of Countdown Kirk gets them, takes them back to Earth and hands them over to Starfleet.
Starfleet tries to bring the augments back to life but only Harrison survives and all hell brakes loose.

Or not

I don't think it's the woman who speaks, it's someone off-screen!

From what I've heard, it's her talking. She's claims to be working for April, making a business delivery to Phaedus.
