Once frozen you are ok, however should something happen to cause minute fluctations in the temperature this could possibly lead to mishaps, illness or outright death. Thus being thawed out should happen slowly and under expert supervision (the qualified ship's doctor).
Hmmm... but won't the low berth need to be continually cooled to keep it at cryonic temperatures? Ofcourse, if the entire crew is in cryo, you'd probably lower the entire ship's internal temperature to something very low, so energy usage won't be THAT high...

This is the approach I take in my Rebin Empire source material also up for grabs at Pocket Empires. The old site is still running but when next updated which will be quite soon, should have all of the new content on it.

It's .001MW in MT and double that for an emergency low berth.

Thanks!
And how mush MW is a HG EP?

A High Guard EP equals 250 MW (according to STRIKER).

Thanks!

You're welcome and yep the MT conversion is the same, 250MW per EP.

IMTU I have a reptilian race that uses fast drug under pressure and low (not freezing) temperatures to stimulate hibernation. They never developed FTL (until recently) and still use this technique...
