A blog about sewing machine repairs,but mainly my hobbies which include old school role playing games, science fiction,films, horror, and general geekery. Sit down and stay a spell.

Möbius Band Drive System
Developed in CA. 24000 during the Great War, the Möbius Band Drive System uses a system of sub magnetic Klein bottles filled with tachyon particles to shunt ships through sub planar space into the Outer Darkness. The process is expensive, cost prohibitive in both energy & mass, & much of the bodily integrity of the ship is lost in transit.
That is until recently with the advantages lent to the physical sciences by the Pe' Cho'i. The new magnetic resister units allow a ship's A.I to move a ship with very little physical degradation.
The generators of a ship use a tetrahedron hyperdimensional gate system to punch through & lace a ship from one part of space into another without the use of a navigator or psychic! This break through however has made certain groups within Hnalla II's Departments of Science & Religion very nervous. They say that this verges on the domain of the "Gods". The system is powered by miniature stars connected by worm holes suspended within fragmented Klein Bottles of higher dimensional none-space that exists on the sub-atomic level. The entire arrangement is held within tightly packed force fields so that the time travelling aspects of the drive systems don't get out of control. There have been no accidents so far. Scientists remain concerned about the possibilities of travelers from alternative universes taking advantage of the so called window of dimensional openings during operation.
