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 probabilisticWhere the speed of a vessel (measured in multiples of c, the speed of light) is equal to the cube of the given class.
- 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
At the speed of light, a starship would reach c; at class 5, it would reach 216 c.

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.
21ST CENTURY- (20XX): WITHIN SOLAR SYSTEM-RESTRICTED/SYNCHRONOUS ORBIT.
- CROSE ERA- (21XX): MISSIONS TO URANUS/NEPTUNE, NO INTERSTELLAR MISSIONS, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE TO ACCELERATE ¼ OF THE SPEED OF LIGHT. 20 YEARS TO MOVE 5 LIGHT YEARS. 4X4=16 YEARS TO GET THERE. BY 2140~
