Hey all :)

 

 

After looking at the Wasp that SIRBYTEME was using I saw something interesting on it's wing tips:

 

WM 1701

Click to Enlarge :)

 

WingMan 1701 I am thinking :)

 

As for the number 1701 could bea few things :)

 

1701 meaning 17 January or 2017 January?

 

Not so sure so I don't know that, but seeing WM on there kind of made me guess yeah must be WingMan :)

If it's a hidden message I don't think it's about anything important to release date or anything like that; this team has been very upfront whenever there's something real to be said.

Still, speculation is fun.  So start speculating people!

A hidden message for some Enterprising player to decipher? With enough Constitution (and maybe a Trek through the Galaxy), I'm sure someone will figure it out.

Oh yeah that might make sense ah well I thought it was worth mentioning I guess :)

 

Hmm, what we should do is host a game and see if all the other drones have any details like this :)

Hmm maybe be the USS Enterprise NCC-1701:
https://en.wikipedia...rise_(NCC-1701)

"The ship's "NCC-1701" registry number stemmed from "NC" being one of the international aircraft registration codes assigned to the United States;
the second "C" was added for differentiation.[citation needed]

According to The Making of Star Trek, "NCC" is the Starfleet abbreviation for "Naval Construction Contract",
comparable to what the U.S. Navy would call a hull number.[7]

The "1701" was chosen to avoid any possible ambiguity; according to Jefferies, the numbers 3, 6, 8, and 9 are "too easily confused"[/code]
Here an other code found on the Torch KS, which Uriel was using at the time :)"

 
K-112B

As for K-112B I thought of maybe got that from the Heinkel He 112 B-1
