# Follow path breaks up parent-child positions

I have a starship that I would like to go along a nurbs path. The starship is constituted by several objects (hull, lights, etc.) where the hull is set as the parent for the remaining parts so that I can move the ship easily.

When I select the ship, the nurbs path, click Ctrl+P and select Follow Path, the lights jump to the other corner of the scene, and so do other parts of the ship. What could be causing this?
