<[12.0] Propulsion>

The basic assumption for propulsion is that Fleet vessels utilize a fusion-powered reaction drive. Intruders may have both a reaction drive and an inertialess drive; the former will obviously be far more common and affordable.

<[12.1] Delta Vee>

Delta Vee will be limited for both Intruders and Fleet vessels.

<[12.2] Fleet Thrust>

Fleet vessels can operate at up to 12 gees. The limitation here is based on human endurance. Conditioned humans can handle up to 12 gees for a few seconds and 6 gees for a few minutes.

<[12.3] Intruder Thrust>

Intruders can operate at up to 25 gees thrust. This is an arbitrary limitation.
