Greetings to all, I am a long time Star Trek fan and my 7 year old daughter had a game called Kids Trivia where she asked me a question: What is the number of the Starship Enterprise of Star Trek? I answered NCC 1701. She said wrong and I checked the answer on the back of the card which was SC397-0176 CEC. I have looked everywhere. Only thing I could find was the Serial Number listed for Capt.Kirk which was close: SC937-0176 CEC. I assume this is a mistake on the part of the trivia game. Anyone who has more info on this please tell me. Thanks

If memory serves; you are correct. They are thinking about Kirk's service number. NCC-1701 is the ID/registration number. Or it could be the service contract number of the ship builders. If you noticed on the USS Constitution, it's number was NCC-1017.
Contact the manufacture of that game, and let them know that it is 'defective'. If they goofed that up, it's a good chance that their research department has messed up on a few other questions as well.
If it's a trivia game for kids, it should have been a simple answer, not a 'mouth full' of numbers for them.

The term is 'decommissioned', so they could build the Enterprise-B for 'Generations'. They salvage what they can to build other ships with.

There are fans who will tell you that "NCC" stands for "Naval Construction Contract" This would explain why shuttles don't have "NCC" numbers, but runabouts, which are basically small starships do.

Actually, Gene Roddenberry had once said that "NCC" didn't mean anything. Kind of like the GNDN marking you sometimes see on conduits. GNDN Goes nowhere, does nothing.

It was put into what would be a 24th century "junkyard". All torpedo tubes were sealed shut and all weapons were removed. It was stolen by Scotty in one of Shatners books to help the newly ressurected nano-Kirk. It was no more than a floating junk heap by this time.

the ship registry number was always NCC-1701

of course there were variations (NCC-1701-A, -B, -C, -D, -E, NX-01) but it was never SC397-0176 CEC

NCC-1017 is the registry of the Constellation, not Constitution. Matt Decker's vessel.
