Sorry if I come off as nitpicking, but i sorta hope they did their homework. The mistakes that authors and game publishers have made over the years are numerous (particularly in the artwork). Just because its built of wood and has sails doesn't mean it fits.
Ships from 900 BC to 1660 AD are certainly the kinds you can find on Golarion. Basically, anything you’d see sailing from Ancient Greece, to part of the Renaissance; the galley, galleass, longship, cog, caravel, carrack certainly work. But ships, especially warships, like those that appeared from the late 1600s to the 1800s don't fit. The Sloop, Brig, Brigantine, Frigate, Schooner, Cutter, Clipper, Windjammer and the famous "ship-of-the-line," don't work.

Just for the heck of it, I put together a brief that puts the distance of time on Golarion into perspective by using Earth. As mentioned in the AP Reign of Winter's Rasputin Must Die, which states Earth 1918 is parallel to Golarion's present (4713 AR) and using that to work backward as well as I could.
Yes I have to much time on my hands. :P

Best options are either to retire the mythic PCs or leave the boundaries of the world into other dimensions/planes.
There is also the OUTER SPAAAAAACE option.
OR you could have a convoluted plot were Darkseid triggers another Crisis and everything resets to ZERO right before the start of Rise of the Runelords, and everyone goes "What the @$#% just happened!!"

It's not a stretch to say the originators of the crashed starship (which may suggests that it's presence is unintentional) placed programmed protocols in things like the "robots" to help prevent or at least limit "contamination" on what they consider a developing planet. But what if some of the "AI's" gain a form of self-awareness and choose a different course of action.
