The number 47 appears frequently throughout the series. This is due to J.J. Abrams directing and producing the Star Trek reboot movies (as well as show co-Creators and Writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci writing for them). It is well-known in Trek lore that the number 47 appears frequently throughout the different series (from Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) and forward). The story behind that is Joe Menosky (Writer from Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) on) began inserting it, because at his alma mater, Pomona College, 47 was something of a superstition. It goes back to 1964, where it originated partly in a joke-proof from math professor Donald Bentley that all numbers were equal to one another (he chose 47), and partly from the observation by a few students that the number 47 occurred more often than you'd expect it to.
