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.

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

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...
