Just as an FYI, the journey from Galatea to Hardisey's Haven (the world you're currently on) took approximately 430.16LY, and accomplished through 17 jumps. Estimating an average layover of 5 days (factoring recharge time, and availability of already charged jumpships), it would have taken 85 days, or almost 3 months to get there. Keep in mind Galatea is around 70LY from Terra (around 3 jumps), so that should give an impression of the scale of the setting.

(trivia note: Battletech jumpships, despite the fact that they "jump" only 30LY at a time, and require around 1 week to recharge, are faster than a NextGen Star Trek ship travelling at Warp 9, or so I understand)...
