Faster Than Light Travel

Faster Than Light Travel (FTLT or FTL) is the primary method of transportation used inside the Galaxy of Astraesto to travel between planets. When attached to a space-faring vessel, the ship can travel light-years in mere seconds, drastically reducing the amount of time it takes to travel.   Despite its prevalence in Human societies across the Galaxy, FTL is shrouded in mystery. It is believed to have first been discovered or created by scientists of the Homeland, who used it to travel to the Astraesto Galaxy. Despite over 4 millennia of effort from countless scientists and engineers, no one has managed to fully understand how the technology works. Humanity is able to replicate the technology, even making slight improvements over time, but no one understands it.    Nearly every vessel capable of space travel is equipped with FTL equipment, usually manifesting in a core room aboard the vessel, where power is siphoned to the engines. Larger vessels have larger core rooms, even multiple rooms in the case of the largest and most powerful vessels, like that of the Battleship Carrier  Larger ships tend to travel faster at light speed than smaller vessels. The Trans Galactical Highways were built to fully manifest upon the size equals speed of FTL. The highways became the most expensive construction projects in human history, but after years of construction, they became operational and proved their worth. Despite only one of the original five highways remaining, the Anfieden Trans Galactical Highway sees vastly more transport than any other area of the galaxy, and is a route for trade, migration, and so much more.
