That is the essential difference between a FF and a CT: FF have hyper generators (and the Alpha nodes required to form sails), CT do not.

Actually he is correct, but mis-spoke.

1) Wormhole (requires sails)
2) Normal Hyper space (using impellers)
3) Hyper along a Grav wave (Requires sails)

Travel in normal space (N-space, sidereal) uses impellers, thrusters, spider drives, etc.

Doh! You are right. Sorry about that Harold.

Not a problem, I could have been more precise.

To summarize, travel in hyperspace, when NOT in a grav wave, uses Impeller Drive and is functionally the same as N-Space travel -- except it is in a hyperspace bad that multiplies velocity.

Travel in a grav wave or through a wormhole requires Warshawski Sails instead of an Impeller Wedge.

All three require a Hyper-generator. The Hyper-generator is what determines the Hyper-space band and thus the velocity multiplier and effective speed. (except for WH speed which is apparently infinite.)

Answers! I got lots of answers!

(Now if I could just find the right questions.)
