Crush responds: If it's older name was "the Old Port", then there ought to be a "New Port". But the new port wouldn't be called that. It would be given a jazzier name. Just as when the state builds a new highway it's called the Typhon W. Rex Memorial highway or whatever and the old highway is called "Old Thrax Rd." So maybe they didn't launch to the Whorl from there. Or maybe they did. -- Crush --
