Jump Deck

An artificial routing terminal powered by the fixed warp fields created by the Viscain Tree's Stitch Drive. 

Belss Okos, the man first credited with successfully incorporating Vine ganglia into conventional technology, was responsible for designing a series of relays to control and distort the warp fields, making near-instantaneous travel between any two relay points within the Empire possible.

In the beginning the system was used only for extremely long-range jumps and was rather unstable, resulting in a fair number of injuries and one particularly tragic event, costing 23 lives. Over the years refinements were made, but, ultimately, Gilf Scanlan, as Director of Military Hardware, stabilized and perfected the system.
