    Default Why are Earth Ships designated 30_?

    Mods, feel free to move this if this belongs elsewhere. I wasn't sure.

    I can't remember, but was a reason ever given in-universe or otherwise as to why the Earth spaceships started at 301 and then kept ticking up regardless of size of ship or purpose? It might just be me, but I find it rather nonsensical that they started at 301.

    That's a good question, I'd be interested to know if there was an official explanation.

    Well according to wiki in the USA experimental aircraft are designated with an "X-" number. Apparently we're up to the X-55, so maybe they made it an "x-301, 302..." because it was so far away from anything else they had.

    That's probably it, although jumping to 300 is still an odd choice except I suppose for the 1 2 3 thing escyos suggested.

    And we really don't know how they currently designate top secret experiment aircraft, they are top secret after alll.

    Because the furlings secretly told them to make it 30_, so to draw attention away from the fact that they are never scene.
