Default 8.9 vs 7.7 LY

In V1 one of the Trilon ships is given a range of 8.9 LY vs 7.7. What would the effect of this be on the known universe? Big? Small? No real change?

A bigger change would be to use a more up to date near star map

But as to your question - I have a memory of working out that it opened up a couple of the arms to a lot more reachable systems, I'll have to go dig my notes out of the loft.

When you say V1, are you refereing to Travelelr 2300 or to MgT 2300 v1?

In any case, IIRC in both cases it was hard set the 7.7 ly limit, so I guess it's more an errata than anything else...

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

True. Gliese v3? Or another catalog? Maybe Hipparcos data?

Thanks, it's too hard to type on the iPad for a longer reply.
