  • For The Loss
  • The verb jump is commonly used to describe the process of travelling via FTL drive. Dialogue states that the drive itself is "spooled up" prior to use. The term FTL is commonly used in the original Battlestar Galactica film and television series. The term FTL is also commonly used when the show is being discussed by outside parties.
  • Theoretically, a ship travelling at this velocity could traverse the Milky Way galaxy in roughly 200 years. In practice, typical UESA vessels have to refuel every few hundred Lightyears. FTL travel in "busy" areas is coordinated by relay beacons that define dedicated FTL corrdiors reminiscent of airplane flight corridors. In uncharted, open space they are able navigate on their own.
  • FTL is short for for the loss. It is basically the antonym of for the win. Better stated, perhaps, is to say that it means to say, "This isn't working." Example: "Democracy ftl" → "Democracy isn't serving its purpose"
  • FTL, an abbreviation for "Faster Than Light," refers to travel at speeds greater than the speed of light. Albert Einstein concluded from theoretical analysis that travel at such velocities is physically impossible. However, the idea of practical FTL travel remains a mainstay throughout science fiction.
  • Travel interstellar distances. Hop from system to system. Bring the kids to Wally World! Usage: Passive. Usable by those with the FTL ability. Must also have Space Flight in the same mode. It allows access to space rooms outside the star system an FTL equipped player character or a shuttle is currently using Space Flight in. See also: * Space Flight
  • Acronym for For The Loss. Commonly used when something simply doesn't work.
  • FTL es la Velocidad Subespacial, que permite a las naves que tienen integrado este sistema viajar más rápido y recorrer distancias en menor tiempo que si fueran a velocidad crucero (esta velocidad es a la que va la nave en casos normales y sin necesitar la FTL). Esta presente en la Destiny y hasta el momento es la única nave que posee esta tecnología Los aliens azules parecen poseer una tecnología similar, que se utiliza en su nave nodriza, sin embargo, la tecnología actual utilizada no es claro por lo que puede ser otra forma de tecnología de propulsión.
  • FTL drives are devices which allow ships to travel at FTL speeds through space. FTL drive cores work by exposing element zero to electric currents, creating mass effect fields. It reduces the mass of an object, such as a starship, to a point where velocities faster than the speed of light are possible. With a mass effect drive, roughly a dozen light-years can be traversed in the course of a day's cruise without bending space-time and causing time dilation.

It reduces the mass of an object, such as a starship, to a point where velocities faster than the speed of light are possible. With a mass effect drive, roughly a dozen light-years can be traversed in the course of a day's cruise without bending space-time and causing time dilation. The precise maximum speed and the time this acceleration can be maintained varies depending on the exact type of FTL drive being used. In general, the larger the drive, the longer the ship can run at FTL. When travelling across space, thrusters are applied in one direction for the first half of the trip, then the thrusters are reversed for the second half of the trip in order to reach appropriate speeds for arriving. In 2185, Commander Shepard can have a conversation with Marab on this particular point stating that several people who travel in space forget that the ship must be slowed as much as it was accelerated, hence it will start being slowed halfway to its destination.

  • FTL es la Velocidad Subespacial, que permite a las naves que tienen integrado este sistema viajar más rápido y recorrer distancias en menor tiempo que si fueran a velocidad crucero (esta velocidad es a la que va la nave en casos normales y sin necesitar la FTL). Esta presente en la Destiny y hasta el momento es la única nave que posee esta tecnología El más rápido del motor-que la luz, o en el motor FTL, es una tecnología utilizada en la antigua nave Destiny. Es capaz de viajar más rápido que la luz, sin entrar en el hiperespacio. Un agujero de gusano entrantes a la nave Stargate activará la unidad para cerrar temporalmente, lo que permite conectar la puerta. Esto sugiere que la comunicación subespacial También es posible mientras la unidad está en uso. La activación y desactivación de este dispositivo crea una interrupción subespacio que temporalmente interrumpe la comunicación entre la versión Tau'ri de los dispositivos de comunicación antigua de largo alcance. (SGU: "Aire, Part 1", "Tierra") FTL puede ser interrumpido por la presencia de pozos de gravedad inesperada, lo que es necesario para el buque antes de salir del pozo FTL puede ser restablecida. (SGU: "Fe") Los aliens azules parecen poseer una tecnología similar, que se utiliza en su nave nodriza, sin embargo, la tecnología actual utilizada no es claro por lo que puede ser otra forma de tecnología de propulsión. FTL ha convertido también en una expresión Tauri para un motor capaz de viajar a velocidades superiores a la de la luz, ya sea a través del uso del hiperespacio o no.

  • An abbreviation that stands for "Faster Than Light". Due to the physics involved, it is not possible to accelerate to the speed of light in reality without producing infinite energy, whereas even swifter velocities produce imaginary numbers. Despite this, many characters in fiction surpass lightspeed without any reference to the impossibility inherent in such a feat, and they certainly display no signs of being able to use infinite amounts of energy. Many times, some form of FTL travel is used in science-fiction for spaceships, as it is necessary to cross the vast distances between star systems within a reasonable amount of time. This contains the widest speed tiers, from FTL to Massively FTL+, stretching all the way through every finite speed value that is greater than the speed of light. Many characters have FTL hyperbole, but without consistent feats, these statements are not accepted as accurate. Kinetic Energy does not realistically apply to characters with any degree of FTL speed. For light dodging feats, see this page.
