I've been looking at the material on the site, and found nothing about what the Hyper-Link level really means. What's the difference between an Alpha and Gamma jump? Why not every star has links between them? Did you steal Niven and Pournelle's Alderson Drive? =P



(P.S.: When does the store come back online?)

The FTL in the Ten Worlds has jump distances that link specific stars. Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Epsilon are the different jump distances and are accessed by different equipment on the ships.

There were point-to-point topologies for interstellar travel other than the Alderson drive, but this is why every star doesn't link to every other star. It makes for a human-comprehensible strategic situation.
