Hirsch Penetration Drive
A penetration drive capable of operating in high gravity environments and traversing the Echo
The Future is Now is a cheesy sci-fi setting set in a nonsense universe where humans were exterminated without a trace eons ago and are long forgotten. The only remnants of humanity is that it's culture survived in a universe full of humanaboos.
The difference between a piloting ticket and a floozy is what they hit.
The following information is confidential. Under protection of the Culturate, illegal access may result in the destruction of your immediate kin and their race/home-planet.The Hirsch Drive can operate in high gravity environments, such as standard planetary surfaces and black holes, allowing safe penetration in rear space outside of zero gravity environments. Theoretically, the Hirsch Drive can be used to traverse the Echo safely, allowing faster than light travel throughout the universe.
Warm up the Penetration Drive, once we've achieved full penetration, we're coming into rear space.A faster than light engine that works by traversing through Rear space, a stable higher dimensional region. The Penetration Drive revolutionized logistics, allowing travel between galaxies within the average Sentient's lifespan. Normally travelling through real space is limited by the speed of light and takes years to traverse between solar systems, although not used within local star system due to the lack of precision.
A spaceship in station is safe, but that's not what spaceships are built forRegions of unstable Rear Space that cause Penetration Drives to spontaneously combust. Echos effectively prevent FTL travel, which can strand travelers unprepared for a decade long journey to the nearest relay, if the ship isn't just blown up to scrap.
