Description (Specifications)[edit]

The reality Drive is based on Reality Manipulation. The principle of the drive is that it constantly manipulates reality so the ship is ever slightly closer to the target destination. Should a ship with such a drive collide with a planet, star or other cosmic object, the drive can "revise" reality to prevent the collision. Such drives and their operators would theoretically be bound by a sizable set of rules to prevent abuse of the drive that could prove catastrophic.
