The Jumpspace Institute is a renowned institution of higher learning with programs including training for starship engineers and naval architects.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Jumpspace Institute, which maintains a research facility on HRD (Deneb 1623), is actively working to break the Jump-6 Barrier. While nearly all of the Institute's findings are classified and secured by Regency Naval Intelligence (RNI), it is known to the general public that HRD's Jumpspace Institute is pro-Jump^2 (or Jump Squared). Jump Squared advocates believe that the most probable method of breaking the Jump-6 Barrier is to find a way to perform a jump while already in jump space.

Chief opponents of the Jump Squared faction are the Misjumpers. Misjumpers believe that in order to break the Jump-6 Barrier, scientists must find a way to harness the chaotic effects of misjumps. One of the main proponents of the Misjumper faction are the Jumpspace Institute scientists at Research Station Zeta on Depot Beta (Pashus (Deneb 1432)). Neither side has developed conclusive results, but the debate rages on.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Originally established at Deneb (Deneb 1925) to investigate interstellar jump drives. Financed originally by the Duke of Deneb, the institute has since become an arm of the sector government.
