Ugh. Should have done the math first. Turns out the 100-D limit of the star is out almost to Orbit 3, but I was wrong, the nearest GG is at Orbit 4.

Star 100-D is 1.2x108km
Orbit 0 - empty
Orbit 1 - Jurin - 6x107km
Orbit 2 - empty
Orbit 3 - Nexin - 1.5x108km
Orbit 4 - Grania(SGG) - 2.4x108km

Rolling for relative positions of planets (bc they aren't all lined up nice and neat)
Jurin - 11 o'clock
Grania - 5 o'clock
(and whoever said you couldn't use 12-sided dice in Traveller? )

So, they are pretty much exactly opposite. Can't fly that in a straight line without getting roasted, but say add 10% for a little curvature to avoid the star.

3x108km x 1.1 = 3.3x108km
Travel time at 1G (per TTB p.54) is about 95 hours.

Let's see if you just jumped to the 100-D limit closest to Jurin:
1.2x108km - 6x107km = 6x107km
Travel time at 1G (per TTB p.54) is about 40 hours.

BTW, the SGG is size 70, so 100-D = 1.6x100x70,000=1.1x107km
Travel time from exit to skim would be about 17 hours.

So where did you want to exit Jump?
