Sea of Dreams
Travel between the stars is not as simple as just pointing your ship and pressing go. For one thing a ship can not enter or exit the Lanes while within a system’s Crystal Sphere.
Travel between planetary bodies within a single system is often a matter of several weeks’ journey, while journeying via the Lanes means a journey between stars might take only a few days or even hours. However, this does not mean there is always a direct Lane between your location and destination. There are often several stops required in any journey between the stars.
