Faster-than-light travel, often shortened to FTL travel, or simply just FTL, is a method of traveling that permits the user to greatly exceed the speed of light (c = 299,792,458 m/s) while transiting the space between two points.

History Edit

FTL travel was speculated to be feasible since the 1960s, throught the use of either artificial or natural wormholes. This was confirmed to be true by the Sphere, which gave humanity the knowledge needed to artificially create and maintain wormholes, so they can easily transit space between star systems and lead the Resistance in their assault of the Alien homeworld.

Efficiency Edit

FTL travel is the most efficient way of transiting the distance between star systems, considering the user can reach distant astronomical objects without experiencing time dilation.
