Re: Some "Court Martial" notes.

^Well, unless the ship was in a powered/forced orbit over a specific part of the planet, as it might need to be in order to stay in transporter or sensor range of a given location that isn't near the equator. Then it's not strictly orbiting so much as thrusting to keep station, and without power, it would indeed fall. Although I guess that doesn't apply to "The Galileo Seven."
