(Redirected from STL)
- It is the opposite of FTL: Faster Than Light
- It is a term used in space and starflight to contrast with the standard FTL-Drive in use throughout Charted Space, the Jump drive.
- Speed of Travel
This equals Spacefaring (System Spaceflight... may have STL starflight or interstellar NAFAL travel)
- While NAFAL is sometimes used as general term for STL interstellar drives, it more properly denotes a particular type of gravitic-based long-range/long endurance propulsion system.
- Relativistic Travel
NAFAL drives are slow compared to FTL drives. They are relativistic and cannot exceed the light speed limits.
