For those of you who like Warp Drive How would you like it to work? Here are some general assumptions for starters. The Traveller Warp Drive replaces the jump Drive and fits in standard starships and is the same size, mass, volume and price as the corresponding jump drives by number. In otherwords a warp 1 drive has the same volume, mass, cost and fuel requirements as a jump 1 drive per module. But they behave differently.

Option 1: The Star Trek Warp Drive
Warp 1 = 1c 1 parsec in 3.26 years
Warp 2 = 8c 1 parsec in 4.8 months
Warp 3 = 27c 1 parsec in 1.4 months
Warp 4 = 64c 1 parsec in 2.64 weeks
Warp 5 = 125c 1 parsec in 9.5 days
Warp 6 = 216c 1 parsec in 5.5 days

Option 2: The Linear Warp Drive
Warp 1 = 100c 1 parsec in 11.9 days
Warp 2 = 200c 1 parsec in 5.9 days
Warp 3 = 300c 1 parsec in 4 days
Warp 4 = 400c 1 parsec in 3 days
Warp 5 = 500c 1 parsec in 2.4 days
Warp 6 = 600c 1 parsec in 2 days

Option 3: The Linear Warp Drive B
Warp 1 = 200c 1 parsec in 5.9 days
Warp 2 = 400c 1 parsec in 3 days
Warp 3 = 600c 1 parsec in 2 days
Warp 4 = 800c 1 parsec in 1.5 days
Warp 5 = 1000c 1 parsec in 1.2 days
Warp 6 = 1200c 1 parsec in 1 day

Each Jump drive uses up its dedicated Jump fuel in 5 days.
