And it apparently didn't get the Valley Forge treatment along the way, either.
I don't get the reference. The only spaceship named Valley Forge
I know of, aside from an Excelsior
-class ship in a DS9 episode, was a troop transport in Starship Troopers
that got destroyed. Are you just saying that the rescued Earth species survived the trip?
EDIT: Just after I posted, I remembered -- you mean the Valley Forge
from Silent Running
. I missed that in my web search because I googled "Valley Forge starship," and SR took place within the solar system. Fortunately my brain's internal search engine, rusty though it's becoming now that I've outsourced much of my memory to the Internet, finally kicked in.
