It had remained highly suspected but never proven until TD+9 that the Due Return was a single ship of a class of many. Only one reported encounter with another polycron ark or arc (PCA, and ark or arc depending on usage and text consulted) is believed to have occurred--that of the mysterious reflections or multiples documented in TD+16. Teddy Hubble I was able to provide, from memory, a list of other known vessels in the class PCA to have docked in the previous century at Estanzione, that being a sort of classroom exercise to which all children, foreigners, and poets were frequently subjected. Hubble I also was able to at least confirm through hearsay that some of Estanzione’s renowned circles lifelong couriers were known to name over a 1,000 ships or more during festival drinking contests.

Hubble I’s recitation was delivered during perhaps one of his last, if not final jovial moments aboard the ship. Hubble I began, reportedly, a long series of whoops and bird-calls into the massive chambers of the hives in TD+17, followed by a list in what one listener noted as being an “ironicly devout and incantatory style.” Transcription from lounge coasters and napkins has been an iffy and literally spotty affair, but the accuracy is of less volume importance than their number. The list follows:
