Hyperspace is a common Science Fiction concept, allowing a ship to enter a different region or dimension of space where travel occurs faster than light. It is defined differently in many works of fiction.
Space Cases poorly defines Hyperspace, but it has some rules:
- Hyperspace jumps require fuel
- The "jumps" are not indefinite
- Hyperspace engines are unreliable, and nearly require a full-time engineer (such as Suzee )
- A jump must have a navagation path, or else is a "blind jump" where collisions and bad endpoints can cause issues. This is similar to the Telemorph's problem.
