The USS Benjamin Franklin is a military twain of the United States Navy's LONGCOM. It was originally captained by Maggie Kauffman, having been built by a collaboration including the Twain Design Division of the Black Corporation, General Electric and the Long Earth Trading Company.
The Benjamin Franklin is described as being the same size as the Hindenburg.
In April 2040, the Benjamin Franklin was among the six twains who took part in the Operation Prodigal Son.
In June-July 2040, it took part in the march on Valhalla's city hall by the militaries.
We learn from Maggie Kauffman that, in the early years after the Yellowstone eruption, the Franklin was assigned to refugees relocation missions in the Low Earths.
