Static clouds shorted systems, micrometeoroids punctured plating, and gravitational anomalies dragged the ship off course. The ship also lost the ability to communicate back to Earth, and was eventually considered lost. In time, it found a different star to orbit around, and a hostile but barely habitable planet to call home, and the colonists woke up.

They chose to serve.
