The hyperdrive is a propulsion system that allows specifically retrofitted spacecrafts, like the Andromeda Havens and UNS Medea, to reach lightspeed and traverse the void between stars in an alternate dimension known as hyperspace.


The hyperdrive functions by sending hypermatter particles to hurl a ship into hyperspace while preserving the vessel's mass/energy profile, and requires a functional hyperdrive motivator to do so. However, these motivators emit slight neutron radiation, which is possible to detect with specialized sensors. The vessel then travels along a programmed course (hyperlane) until it drops back into normal space at its destination.
