A jump drive allows a starship to be instantaneously teleported between two points. A jump drive enables a spacecraft to go from one point in space to another point, which may be several light years away, in a single instant.

A jump drive enables a space craft to execute a jump from anywhere in normal space and move directly to any other location. The jump drive is, however, subject to limitations such as distance from strong gravity wells. Also, the total distance per jump is limited and multiple jumps may be needed to reach the final destination. Jump drives require significant power and require time to "re-energize" the jump drive after a jump, thereby limiting the frequency at which jumps can be executed.

A Jump Drive has an average jump range of 10 light years.

The Jump Drive is the most common FTL (Faster-Than-Light) drive.
