The U.S.S. Enterprise was originally slated to be named Yorktown when Roddenberry was creating the series, but eventually he and art director Matt Jefferies went with Enterprise instead. The starship is given an official registry number of NCC-1701, with the prefix “NCC” actually serving as an international aircraft registration code.
Although the U.S.S. Enterprise was not featured in all Star Trek series, it was visible in The Original Series and all 13 feature films in the collection of Star Trek productions. 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the creation of Star Trek.
