MaxV = Maximum Speed

vC-K = Fuel Burn to move 1000 kt of ship at maximum speed a distance of 100 ly

vC/2 - K = Fuel Burn to move 1000 kt of ship at one half maximum speed a distance of 100 ly

vC/4 - K = Fuel Burn to move 1000 kt of ship at one quarter maximum speed a distance of 100 ly

E = Energy output produced by one engine (For use by weapon systems)

Hard = Hardness of the engine (Resistance to damage)

Fusion Drives

Cheap engine, strongly built. The R50 has a good energy output and works well on short range defense ships.

PLAN0005.gif

Ion Drives

Good engine for freighters. Low fuel usage. Easily damaged.

PLAN0006.gif

Impulse Drives

Fair energy output. Good top speed, but uses large amounts of fuel.

PLAN0007.gif

Electrogravitic Drives

Very low energy output. Very fragile. Medium speed. Uses little fuel.

PLAN0008.gif

Turbo Thruster

Fast for a low tech engine. Engine can take a lot of damage. At high speeds burns an extreme amount if fuel. Energy output is very high. This engine was designed for battle.

PLAN0009.gif

Tylium Thruster

Think of it as the Turbo Thruster`s big brother. Very fast for a low tech engine. Engine is the toughest of all engines. At high speeds it burns an extreme amount if fuel. Energy output is the highest of all engines. This engine was designed for battle. It is the best engine to have on a battleship.

PLAN0010.gif

Energy Conversion

Very low energy output. Fragile. Medium speed. Uses little fuel. Cheap.

PLAN0011.gif

Scalar Wave Thruster

Fair energy output. Strongly built. Slow speed.

PLAN0012.gif

Lazar Drive

Very low energy output. Fairly strong, Slow speed. Uses very little fuel. A great drive for very heavy freighters.

PLAN0013.gif

Warp Drives

Very fast. Very good energy output. Strongly built. Uses a large amount of fuel.

PLAN0014.gif

Transwarp

Fastest engine known. The second highest energy output of all engines. The most expensive of all engines. Fragile.
