The Prometheus was the last great ark that brought humanity from Earth-That-Was to the 'Verse. The monstrous ship was at least five times the size of an Anglo-Sino Alliance cruiser. The Prometheus, named for the legendary god that gave man fire, stood in the city New Paris on the planet Bernadette as a monument to the traveler's courage. The sheer sight of the ark inspired all manner of awe and jaw-dropping. Inside the ark was a museum containing information about the journey, and also information on the cultures and history of Earth-That-Was.
