Hayashi Drive Edit
The Hayashi drives were developed by the brilliant Japanese-Russian physicist, Dr Mitsuo Hayashi (19th May 2030-11th December 2117) that led to the children of terra taking to the stars. They work by opening a wormhole through space that greatly reduced the distance travelled. Ships don’t travel quicker so much as travel over a shorter distance. This allowed travel at 1.1 times the speed of light initially, before being improved by the interstellar coalition led by the Reivers that developed the Hayashi MK.2 Drive in 2130 that allowed travel at a rate of 50 times the speed of light. The peak speed of 500c was reached in 2229.
