Interstellar Transport

Interstellar transport technologies include all those technologies related to the movement of cargo and passengers between star systems, distances of half a light year or more: true relativistic interstellar ships capable of making the entire voyage on their own, shorter range vessels made to travel via wormhole link that have a range measured in mere light hours or weeks rather than years, the network of traversable wormholes, the beamrider network, and all of the systems that power, support, or propel interstellar traffic.
