Ransom Castle was a starship, a privately-owned Human entry into The Great Starship Race in the year 2269.
History and specificsEdit
Ransom Castle was sponsored by the Ransom Carnvale International Mining Corporation and was commanded by a former Starfleet cadet, Nancy Ransom.
During the race, the Ransom Castle ran into some difficulty when they entered a nebula as a short-cut. Unknown to Captain Ransom they were being pursued by the Romulan cruiser, Red Talon, who also wanted a short-cut to Gullrey so that they could annihilate the planet. Fortunately, the USS Enterprise arrived to save the Ransom Castle. (TOS novel: The Great Starship Race)
