Another idea:

USS Everest, NCC-50896.

Yes, the number was deliberate. May 8, 1996. Look it up.
if you're referring to the Everest disaster, that was May 10th.

surely it'd be better to commerate Everest being succesfully scaled the first time with NCC 52953 or 29553

51096, then.

And those men who died on the mountain deserve to be commemorated. That's why I picked this disaster rather than the successful summit(s).

Re: Registry meanings?

Why commemorate fools? So that nobody else would follow in their footsteps? Generally, success is the thing to receive a subtle nod like this; even the Sullivans died for what might be argued to have been a good cause. Commemoration of the "never again" sort is classically conducted on very different venues.

I thought about that, but I admit I had the disaster fresh in my mind because I'd just watched the IMAX film about it. If it's a better idea to celebrate a successful summit, then that's fine.

Perhaps those dates you mentioned would be better attached to the actual names of the climbers? USS Edmund Hillary, USS Tenzing Norgay...

(if there were to be a ship named after Hillary, I got a great motto for the dedication plaque: "Well, George, we knocked the bastard off." )

Yeah. Fuck those whose spirit beckons them to go off into the unknown, boldly going where they've never gone before!

J-balls to the Wizzalls.

I guess we should erect a statue for every bunch of teens who for the first time boldly experiment with driving & spirits and orphan half a dozen sets of kids in addition to killing themselves?

Moutaineering is fine with me. Shedding tears (or helicopter fuel) for idiots who manage to Darwin themselves out of the equation on their littering and advertising tour is waste of good liquid.
