Golgafrinchan ark fleet ship b

The ship hurtling towards Earth.

The Golgafrinchan Ark Fleet Ship B was a starship designed to relocate the (largely redundant) useless part of the population from the planet of Golgafrincham. The ship was led by the captain, with Number One and Number Two next in charge.



The Golgafrinchan Ark Fleet Ship B was a way of removing the basically useless citizens from the planet of Golgafrincham. A variety of stories were formed about the doom of the planet, such as blowing up, crashing into the sun or being eaten by a mutant stargoat. The ship was filled with all the middlemen of Golgafrincham, such as the telephone sanitisers, account executives, hair dressers, tired TV producers, insurance salesmen, personnel officers, security guards, public relations executives and management consultants.

Ark Fleet ships A and C  were supposed to carry the people who ruled, thought, or actually did useful work.

The ship was programmed to crash onto its designated planet, Earth. The captain remember that he was told a good reason for this, but had forgotten it, although the reason was later revealed to be because the Ark Ship B Golgafrinchans were a 'bunch of useless idiots'.

Flight to EarthEdit

After the ship took off, no word was heard from either Golgafrincham or the other A and C ships.

After five years of travelling, Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect were teleported onto the ship. They spoke to the captain and were very alarmed by the story of the ship.

On EarthEdit

The ship crashed onto the supercomputer Earth, and was completely destroyed. This was totally normal and occurred because the passengers and crew onboard were a bunch of useless idiots who the Golgafrinchans didn't want to return to Golgafrincham.

Notable crew and passengersEdit

The notable crew and passengers of the ark are:
