Default Re: Time in Jump Space

I always defer to the original MWM article in JTAS 24:
Quote:
The duration of a jump is fixed at the
instant that jump begins, and depends on
the specific jump space entered, the
energy input into the system, and on
other factors. In most cases, jump will
last a week.
Quote:
At the end of the week in jump, the
ship naturally precipitates out of jump
space and into normal space. The exact
time of emergence is usually predicted
by the ship's computer and the bridge is
well-manned for the event.
