  •  Hippie? (6+ / 0-)

    I thought it originated in fishing and whaling...the central "processing" ship from which the smaller catch vessels would sail and return. Also used similarly in SciFi, where the mothership is the big intergalactic transport which sends forth smaller craft to explore the planets, etc.

    What's the hippie connotation, to you?
