I'm fully aware that the TRUTH is painful.

They can repatriate Dusty in a convict hulk.

Well, below is NOT for for you Dragon,  but people unfamiliar with the meaning of HULK.

British authorities had used the transportation of criminals overseas as a form of punishment since the early 17th century, particularly to provide labour in the American colonies. When in the 18th century, the death penalty came to be regarded as too severe a punishment for offences such as theft and larceny, transportation to North America became an even more popular form of sentence.

Convicts sentenced were sent to hulks, old or unseaworthy ships, generally ex-naval vessels, moored in rivers and harbours close enough to land for the inmates to be taken ashore to work.
The hulks quickly became a cost-efficient, essential and integral part of the British prison system.

In 1784, the British government passed legislation authorising the transportation overseas of convicts from the hulks. The notion of using hulks as floating prisons was exported along with the convicts. Eventually convict hulks were established at many British colonies including Gibraltar, Bermuda, New South Wales and Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania).

In 1857, a group of Success prisoners was hanged for the murder of John Price, Inspector General of Penal Establishments in Victoria. Price had a reputation for inhumane treatment of prisoners and his assassination triggered an inquiry into the use of the hulk system, leading to its ultimate demise.

Indeed,

The USS Enterprise, the 'Big E' , not the CVN-80 was under discussion
to be converted into a 'HULK' Accommodation ship...
However, people with pride decided against it and the final reactor was defueled in December 2016. The final decommissioning is scheduled for February 2017.
