The Long War

In 2040, the Navy had a graving yard in Detroit.[1]

The USS Benjamin Franklin had to go to the graving yard after a fault had been reported on one of its turbine and went under repair under the vigilant eyes of Nathan Boss, the ship's XO, Harry Ryan, the ship's chief engineer, Carl, the young troll travelling aboard the ship and Shi-mi, a gift from the Dr George Abrahams.

It was during the Franklin's stay that news of the disappearance of the USS Neil A. Armstrong I reached the Datum.
