Well, since you did bring it up Constitutions with 700 registries... Click!

Re: Matt Jefferies and NCC-1017

Woah that's awesome! Though let me say I just don't get the "0" in front of three digit numbers. I mean in that case it should be two zero's if we take into account next generation era registries lol.

Re: Matt Jefferies and NCC-1017

It would have been a nice tip of the hat to TOS, but it just doesn't make any sense in the alternate timeline. It simply doesn't fit with the newly established ship design aesthetic that all the others possess, from Kelvin to Enterprise to Vengeance. I can see it having been on some designer's drafting table amongst a myriad other failed concepts, but I certainly can't see a studio-scale replica being built and looming ominously over a flag Admiral's office without seeing some indication that it might have been used in the fleet somewhere. This is especially considering all the "real" ships that we know have known to exist in that timeline (before and after the split) are nothing more than comparatively tiny desktop models behind him. Nothing about the picture makes any logical sense and, yes, it does look fake.

Re: Matt Jefferies and NCC-1017

I suspect it's supposed to be holographic, like the floating torpedoes Marcus showed Kirk and Spock, or the video phone in the deleted scene of Marcus receiving Harewood's message.

0718 is important to someone high up, since the number appeared on a Newton-type ship at Starbase 1 (which had a TOS-style bridge dome and red bussard collectors) and as the final name of Joseph Gatt's cybernetic character (previously GATT2000), Science Officer 0718.

Presumably it's a birthday like with Kelvin's registry.

Re: Matt Jefferies and NCC-1017

The hell? Is that picture of Marcus under an original Constitution genuine? If so, that's crazy. On about six levels. Magnificent, but crazy.

Also the final 0718 is odd, as not only is it grey not lightish brown like most Abrams ship stuff, it also has the TOS details. I'm torn between being pleased at the TOS stylings and thinking it doesn't fit with the new aesthetic, but the former's definitely winning.

The registries thing with Consellation is odd, but I always took it that NCC numbers were production codes that were assigned as they freed up, but also moved upwards in a general way. Who knowshow NCC registries actually work: it might be registered by where and when built (like 1017th of the San Fran shipyard, 1701st of the San Fran shipyard) but that wouldn't account for the A, B, C or D, unless they were being filed as replacements for production code 1701 regardless of where/when built.

Re: Matt Jefferies and NCC-1017

It seems to be USS Biddeford. As in, most likely, Biddeford, Maine. Someone on the production staff was likely born there.

I hope there are more shots of that ship. I rather like it--but for TOS fan fic use only...
