Yeah like the greatest of problems will probably keeping your spaceship
from burning to nothingness while waiting for your personal time gate...
I can hear him call "The charcoal can't take it any more Jim"
No, serious there arises a slight problem:
Different gravitational forces...
Star Treck is running in this cosm (errr,m weeeeelll, somewhat :)) so
each celestial body has it's own specific gravitational pull and with
regards to the sun this is a lot more than your standart 1G....
But hell, rather use magic...and do it like Back to the future... you
have to attain a Spelljamming speed of about 12 to do the jump..:)
Nuff from me.
Bye.
Carsten.
