The Infinity Drive is a propulsion system of traveling faster than the speed of light, derived from alien technology. The technology was discovered in the 2470.


Basis of the drive

By the year 2470, humanity had discovered the ability to travel faster-than-light through Infinity drive. A Infinity drive is capable of decreasing the mass of a starship, essentially allowing it to ride a beam of light, and eventually the starship rides a tachyon wave like a zipline through to its target location. The infinity drive moves the starship through space at such a high-rate of speed that the ship ultimately phases out of existence passing through objects on its way to its final location. Near-instantaneous transit anywhere in the galaxy, maybe even cosmos.

Mathematical and probabilistic

Warp 1

A geometric progression

Where the speed of a vessel (measured in multiples of c, the speed of light) is equal to the cube of the given class.

with

  • v being the speed of the signal or starship
  • c being the speed of light (3.0 × 108 m/s) and
  • wf being the resulting sprint class
Warp 2

To calculate speed (v) in terms of c

At the speed of light, a starship would reach c; at class 5, it would reach 216 c

Sprinter drive time table

FTL multiplier 5 light years 20 light years 10,000 light year Nearby galaxy Notes
Standard orbit <0.00001 (9600 kph) 558,335 years 2 million years 1 billion years 223 billion years synchronous orbit around a planet
Maximum sublight 0.25 20 years 80 years 40,000 years 8 million years Normal maximum speed for sublight for efficiency and avoid severe effects of relativity, used in solar sails
Light speed 1 5 years 20 years 10,000 years 2 million years Speed of light: C=299,792 km/s
Class 1 sprint 10x 6 months 3 years 992 (1,000)years 198,425 (200,000) years First level to be considered a sprint
Class 2 sprint 40x 2 months 1 year 257 years 51,360 (50,000) years Considered to be an average cruising speed
Class 3 sprint 100x 18 days 2 months 98 (100) years 19,686 (20,000) years
Class 4 sprint 200x 9 days 1 month 47 (50) years 9,357 (10,000 years) Considered to be a maximum speed for the most common civilian starships
Class 5 sprint 400x 5 days 19 days 25 years 5,096 years Cruising speed of most military starships
Class 6 sprint 650x 3 days 11 days 15 years 3,048 years Cruising speed for the Ibn Battuta
Class 7A sprint 1,000x 2 days 1 week 10 years 1,953 (2,000) years Maximum speed for the most advanced military ships.
Class 7B sprint 1,500x 1 day 5 days 7 years 1,319 years Maximum speed for the Ibn Battuta
Class 7C sprint 3,000x 15 hours 3 days 4 years 678 years

The Ibn Battuta has been known to exceed to 3,000 times light speed on very rare occausions, as it damages the membrane of the ships FTL systems. Can only be used for quick boosts.
