Fastest ships go 13ly per day. So how did they go the 136ly per day to make it in 600 years
Actually don't answer that
And I'd think Tempest would be in drydock on Nexus?
Tempest is docked. Looks like Arks travelled slower than the accompanying Nexus. And then you also have to account for drift. But then again these systems were automated so you would think that they would have tried to maintain a relative position to each other for speed and course. Guess that they have an excuse for that one. We'll have to wait and see.
Reckon they would they say"so we could complete the Nexus"?
Like with any good scifi story, it will be picked apart, have hundreds of theories, with little to no validation of what was intended. But I like the storyline and concepts so far. Does raise some serious conspiracy theories about Cerberus involvement in the initiative, weapons, and that drive core on the Tempest looks very similar to the SR2 drive core. 🤔
It's .... an efficent model.
Haters gonna hat, lovers gonna love, conspirators gonna conspire.... always has been that way and always will be.
Most of those theories derive from them being too connected to the original trilogy.
I say we have to disconnect ourselfs from shep and the old crew as good as possible, to give this story it's chance to start something great on it's own, instead of bearing the burden of all that was 'wrong' in the original trilogy.
Back to topic.... at this distances, even small miscalculations or a short reboot of the navigation VI can lead to significantly different times arrival. I am just guessing here though
Granted, if relay to relay has a potential of 1500k drift or more. If you recall from the route trajectories it looked to have several (4 I think) waypoints which could be points for course corrections and system checks. ODSY drives then would be running solid for 125 yrs per waypoint. But if they ran automated for 630 years, then you could have 5 vessels spread out all over the place. I would fire my navigators and operations chief at that point. But it's all fun.
I would assume they stay in contact while in ftl speed, but on the other hand the operate on windows 5000 Andromeda Edition for 600 years without an update. Guess who is to blame.....
Good one! Gotta chuckle outa that one.
Space voyage needs acceleration and deceleration, which take most of the time. It's not just start/stop that simple.
Hence the extra 34 years I guess?
What do you think?
