    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.

    ^ Explain to me, what you think the word 'compassion' means.

    I feel the deepest compassion for those unfortunate who happened to marry the fucking idiots that fell to their deserved deaths, and had to raise their fatherless kids and live with the other consequences. Perhaps there should be a permanent machine gun outpost at the base camp for executing anybody stupid enough to try something like that?

    Not that ship registries in the real world would honor anything much. But I trust nobody would name a vessel after a criminal moron from that bunch.

    I think that's quite enough, Timo. It's one thing not to feel about those deaths the same way others do but calling them insults and even criminals goes a little too far and will needlessly rile up other people.

    Let's get back to discussing registry numbers and their meanings please, everyone.

    NCC-2525, can be assigned to either the USS Exordium or USS Terminus.

    Pause, while the rest of you catch up with that reference. ;)

    Think I'm missing the deeper meaning. I just keep coming up with Zager & Evans. :shifty:

    I keep seeing 1977, May, which would be the premier of Star Wars.

    Hospital ship, NCC-4077, USS Hawkeye.

    BTW, while to me NCC stands for Naval Construction Contract, NAR seems to be Naval Astronomical Research. Or something like that...

    Me too! Would the ship be commanded by Henry Blake, Sherman T. Potter, or Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce? Would Frank Burns be the First Officer? Who would play "Hot Lips", Sally Kellerman or Loretta Swit?
