There have been several versions of the Starship Enterprise, NCC-17101 is from the original series of Star Trek. Later models of the Enterprise had an extra letter added to differentiate from each other. I'll stop boring you now.

According to famous Sakhi (Evidence) or story of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, when he was an accountant at a town of Sultanpur Lodhi, he was distributing grocery to people and when he gave groceries to the 13th person he stopped there because in Gurmukhi and Hindi the word 13 is called Terah, which means yours. And Guru Nanak kept on saying, "Yours, yours, yours..." remembering God. People reported to the emperor that Guru Nanak was giving out free food to the people. When treasures were checked, there was more money than before.

Sadly, n-n-n-n-ooooo.

I thought you lot were number-savvy.


13 is a bit ambiguous though Clack, it could be any number of things.

At least PL and the others gave some chance with their numbers.
