FTL Drives

FTL Drives

Calipso FTL

In addition to the Ring Gate the Calipsins have a Sage Drive which only qualified sages can run. The drive is instantaneous over the distance its limiter is it requires an enormous amount of power to travel and is very hard on the “pilot.” It is not uncommon for larger vessels to have several pilots. Typically travel less than 1/800 ps per trip and are rarely in vehicles over SM +8

Craeli FTL

The Craeli use almost every type of Drive of the other races. Warp Drives of this nation can travel about .2 ps/day and requires velocities of .1 c to enter warp. Their Gravity Skip Drive travels at .4 ps/day is notable unreliable and requires .0125 c to activate.

Habasion FTL

The Habasion are one of the fist races to discover their FTL. They posses the fastest Warp Drive which can go .5 ps/day. They have managed to create a sub-warp drive which is a STL version of their FTL drive and requires virtually no velocity to enter warp.

Ridalian FTL

The Ridalian don’t have FTL. Period.

S’neira FTL

The S’neira empire uses a unique FTL system known as the Gravity Skip Drive. The S’neira can travel at .5 ps/day while using this drive. This drive also cannot be interrupted once the jump is initiated. However there is a -1 penalty per parsec for navigation and other penalties for the type of gravity well used for landing and launching. This drive requires .001 c to activate a drive. An can not be built in anything smaller than a SM+8.

Saber FTL

The Sabers have both a warp drive and hyperspace drive. Their Warp Drive travels at speeds up to .25 ps/day and requires an initial speed of .025 c to initiate. Their Hyper Drive is the fastest non-teleport drive. It travels at 2 ps/day however it cannot safely be used to enter a system and it is extremely nauseating for most sentience. It is primary used as an emergency escape because it cannot be tracked until they exit hyper.

Solarian FTL

Much like the Calipsons, the Solarians use the Ring Gate and the Sage Drive which only qualified sages can run. The drive is instantaneous over the distance its limiter is it requires an enormous amount of power to travel and is very hard on the “pilot.” It is not uncommon for larger vessels to have several pilots. Typically travel less than 1/1000 ps per trip and are rarely in vehicles over SM +8. They also use Craeli Warp Drives.

Terran FTL

The Terrans developed a Warp Drive very similar to the Habasions. Their drive can travel at .3 ps/day and requires an initial velocity of .03 c.
