Close on the heels of the joint announcement by
General Shipyards and Tukera Lines that L-Hyd drop tanks would soon be
manufactured in the Regina subsector, came word by express boat from the
Imperial core that a decision has been made to deploy Jump-6 L-Hyd drop
tank express boats on all major express routes. Initial feasibility studies
indicate that such a system could average jump-5.5 per week by executing
maximum jumps, and leaving current xboats to disseminate information between
the new major relay points. The system is expected to cut communication
time to the Imperial hub to under 25 weeks. The Initial System Deployment
Schedule indicates that the Regina subsector can expect to be fully integrated
into the network within a decade.
