I'm sure this has been discussed here but I can seem to find the topic if someone could help. I have a few questions.
I know there are different types of Hyperdrives:
- Galactic : capable of travelling within a galaxy
- Intergalactic: ability to travel between galaxies
- The Asgard drives are the fastest (maybe they can rival a fully powered stardrive in terms of speed: 3 ZPM's)
- I think a basic dirve that the Asgard gave for Prometheus could travel about 136 lightyears in one hour
Compared to the speed of light (in terms of X amounts) how is a basic hyperdrive faster (Basic drive to most advanced drive)?
Then comes the wormhole travel that Zelenka tried. Does it use the same principle as a regular stargate? Instantenuous travel to long distances. What's the power requirement for this and how is it acheived?
