Venture (Jurassic Park)
The S.S. Venture was the cargo ship which transported the captured male tyrannosaur from Isla Sorna to the InGen facility in San Diego. During the voyage, the dinosaur escaped and killed all of the crew before one fatally wounded sailor succeeded in shutting it in the cargo hold before expiring. Unmanned, the ship crashed into the docks in San Diego, and the tyrannosaur was released from the cargo hold by a security guard. After a short rampage through the city, the dinosaur was lured back to the Venture by Ian Malcolm and Sarah Harding. Tranquillized by Sarah and locked back in the hold, the tyrannosaur was returned to Isla Sorna by the Venture, which despite the crash remained seaworthy.
Named for the S.S. Venture in King Kong.
