Concordia Hull # a homage to Enterprise?

Hey all, I've wondered this for years but I've never actually asked anyone who could have the answer. Concordia's hull number is 65, which matches the hull number of USS Enterprise (CVN-65). Was this a homage to the carrier, perhaps signifying that Concordia was as important to the Wing Commander universe as Enterprise was to the Navy (and or Star Trek)?
