Default An Adventure Hook

I came across this on Project Gutenberg, and it would make an interesting adventure hook for any Space: 1889 fan and would not be bad for Traveller either. For Space: 1889, you would have to adjust the dates a little bit, and for Traveller, you would have to work a bit more at it.

Quote:
And this seemingly commonplace commencement of a whaling voyage is, in truth, the story of the departure of one of the most boldly conceived and audacious expeditions against the English government which was ever planned,—the only important Fenian conspiracy which was ever entirely successful.
The book is The Catalpa Expedition, written in 1897.

I march to my own set of bagpipes. Caution: This individual thinks that studying logistics is FUN.

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.

I'll have to see if I can find the video. Someone put a vid up on YouTube of whaling in the upper atmosphere of a world with giant flying animals.
