The earliest ship lists I have are from January 2002, which show ships up to the 11000 ID range and higher, so the ship at least dates back to '02. It should be one of the original (pre-production) ships in SWC.
Probably a CP ship from the Ccom era or one of the randomly given ships when new characters were created back then...
Mine is #5749 and it is one of the later from the Ccom era, given by a player to the Imperial Navy ... and that I use since then as personal ship.
