    Default Entering hyperspace in reverse

    Anybody wonder what would if you went into hyperspace backwards?
    Calvin grows up to be Frazz. The logical continuation of this is, of course, that Frazz then grows up to be Edward Norton's character from Fight Club. And thus, all four of these characters are gods.Let's go one more step. Calvin grows up to be Jeremy, who grows up to be Frazz, who grows up to be "Tyler Durden," while Suzie grows up to be Haruhi Suzumiya; since Kyon becomes The Doctor, this leads to the inescapable conclusion that after the end of Fight Club, Calvin becomes Captain Jack.

    But I don't pretend to guess.

    Uh...you'd enter hyperspace maybe?
    Depending on if hyperdrive relies on sublight engines to push through the conduit, or whether the hyperdrive itself pushes itself throgh. If you required the engines, you would need to have your engines (assuming standard action-reaction engines) facing opposite the direction you wanted to travel.

    you'd travel in the direction your engines are firing, without regard to the front of the ship.

    This makes me wonder.

    When 304's go into reverse thrust. . . . do they beep?

    short range transmitter:

    "-beep-beep-beep- caution, this battlecruiser is reversing -beep-beep-beep-" (like the securicor vans)

    If we're going to install a "backing" warning, we might as well install a break-in alarm for those times when intruders try to board or steal the 304's.

    "You are too close to the battlecruiser. Back away or immediate action will be taken. This is your last warning. *railguns*"

    the 'this battlecruiser is reversing' one is the best

    can someone make one with a voice that sounds less like stephen hawking though?

    its possible just use reverse thrusters and put the hyperspace window backwards easy.

    B5 jumps are like a window into hypersace but they couldn't go 2 way so chances are that it's not possible! and u would just blow up and fall apart or just go boom, boom, boom!

    I would have thought that you can enter hyperspace, but the transmitters or whatever it is that opens the window probably only point to the front of the ship, therefore we're never going to see it happen.

    True enough. Although if a ship could open a hyperspace window in any direction, then I suppose a ship could enter hyperspace 'in reverse' (backwards), assuming of course the ship actually has a front or back. It's really a question of engineering, certainly not physics. Of course it can be done, but why bother? It would be rare that you might need such a thing.

    You could open the HS window and go backwards thru it, but you'd only go as fast as your reverse thrusters could take you.

    HyperSpace is always there, so if you went in backwards, u'd simply be going what ever way you were going to go, but backwards.. its like Walking Backwards... its not going to make a diffrence, because HyperSpace is ALWAYS there its not a wormhole...
