And apologies if Christopher's already made this point or something like it and I've missed it, but even five mile-wide ships, even an armada of 50-odd of them, has a fairly minimal carrying volume compared with the open water on Earth. It'd take a lot more than the generation Martin mentions to cart it all to Sirius by mothership, even assuming they've got FTL drives (which doesn't seem to be the case in the mini-series, but must be the case later on).
