Default Re: Cinematic Rocket Delta-V Rules

I'm wondering because a setting that I'm working on would have present-day reaction drives to be considered 'semi-cinematic' reaction drives...
One way to make a drive more cinematic would be to give them more delta V. (With the ultra tech ones, the figures are speculative anyway. Perhaps your total conversion drive can eject its reaction mass at near lightspeed, though that has other complications...)
