NCC doesn't stand for anything. It was devised by Matt Jefferies, art director of the first Star Trek series. Jefferies, who is a pilot, based NCC on 20th century aircraft registration codes. In such 20th century usage, an "N" first letter refers to an aircraft registered in the USA. A "C" second letter refers to a civil aircraft. Jefferies added a second "C", just because he thought it looked better. Think of it as being like the arbitrary three-letter code that's part of automobile license plate numbers in many states.

Just out of curiosity, is the prefix something we get to use on every ship we have or just once when it has been redeemed from the special c-store?

Hmm...well it was always going to be like that. Remember STIII TSFS? USS Excelsior NX-2000?

Lesson learned. Next time research what you're getting carefully before you pay for it so you know exactly what you're going to get. It doesn't take long to be informed.

Is any of that official? Like a previous poster said, it didn't (at least originally) mean anything, just a bunch of letter Matt Jefferies was inspired to use by civil aviation codes.
