History

Post-Millennium Series

GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters

The Oratio was launched alongside its sister ship the Aratrum in 2048 as part of the United Earth's extraterrestrial emigration plan. The Oratio took on 10,000 passengers and departed for the planet Kepler 425 in the Cygnus constellation, approximately 1,400 light years from Earth. Due to its comparatively longer voyage, the Oratio was equipped with hypersleep pods. By the time the Aratrum reached its destination of Tau-e after two decades of space travel, it had completely lost contact with the Oratio for unknown reasons.

Capabilities

  • Can carry up to 10,000 passengers.
  • Possesses a subspace navigational system that allows the ship to instantaneously jump light years ahead. However, using this system to cover extremely large distances is risky and restricted, as doing so runs the risk of causing large deviations in the ship's destination.
  • Equipped with hypersleep pods designed to keep the ship's passengers in suspended animation during the long voyage between Earth and Kepler 425.

I really want to know what happened to this ship. They introduced it but then did nothing with it. Could have made an extra prequel novel explaining what happened.

Introducing something then nothing doing with it has been common on many movies, so not surprised with this. For example, the prequel novels of the anime trilogy might be cool to watch, see our favorite kaiju wreak havoc on our countries (mine was Megalon/Kamoebas), but look at it, the movie only explains it in just seconds, missing the entire action of the timeline and the trilogy is set 20,000 years into the future, where nothing is left from our world, our great cities - countries, has been lost without any trace, even the iconic landmarks.
