If you're talking about level of helmsman , or for that matter, staying in a
gravity well, you're talking tactical speeds, not spelljamming speeds which
is fixed for everyone independant of level, and comes nowhere near 'jamming
speeds. The only way to go faster, when 'jamming (ie"warp" speed) is with a
Grand Helm (twice as fast, but restricted to wild space). I doubt there will
be "techniques" for Time Travel, just spells, items, and psionics.
