Description (Specifications)[edit]

It mainly describes the visual effect that the ships seems to teleport itself instantly from one point to another without delay and without having to follow a route in the normal universe.

Thus type of propulsion includes :

  • Wormhole technology : the ship creates a temporary wormhole to the intended destination and crosses through. [two-way transport is possible, from and to anywhere].
  • Interstellar Gates  : permanent gates enabling to transport the ship from one system to another, built by a civilization (human or other). One gate may enable to travel to a limited number of other gates, or to all the other known gates. It usually requires the coordinates of the destination's gate to input into the departure gate's system. [two-way transport is possible, only between pre-defined destinations].
  • 'Singularities', which are similar to gates, but  are naturally occurrences of the universe and which only lead to another pre-define point. [two-way transport is possible, but only to one pre-defined destination, not chosen by the civilization].
  • Black hole transport, where the ship goes through a black hole and emerges out of a 'white fountain' in another point of space time. In this case, the ship not only moves in space but also in time, eventually even to another parallel universe. [transport only, to an unchosen destination].
