After a quick review of the game I have two questions. 1. Each hex on the quadrant map represent how much space? One Parsec or smaller? 2. If each hex is one Parsec, does that mean the Corvette has a Jump-2 engine? Additional questions: Are rations staged on the Corvette or do the crew have to buy their own rations? Is one day per "Jump" the standard for all Jumps?

I will sound like a broken record when I say it's been a decade since I played/edited this one...I'll try to go back to my copy and and check and maybe get George on here to chime in.
The hexes, even though rather concrete, were actually indicative of more abstract distances than 1.0 parsecs. I think we were pretty hand-wavey about the rations. I recall 1 day per jump, but I really need to brush up!
Sorry, madhopper, been really focused on fantasy the last few years, although i would really like to go back to sf and standardize things a bit.
