One possible explanation is that they searched and searched and searched and eventually found some naturally occurring anchors to connect the mains. Another is that they crossed the gaps using SLT. The Imperium game allows ship to move one hex (half a light-year) per year. 7 years to cross a gap is an impediment that can be surmounted given sufficient motivation.

Do we have any canon on when the Vilani got J-2?
In -5430.

Yeah, I prefer Astrogator myself and use it in my own chargen stuff, but Navigator still seems the official term.
That's what I'm grumbling about.

(Though I have a vague, possibly false, memory of someone telling me that MgT had switched to 'astrogator').
