Travel times sources. Edit

Can anyone give specific travel times from the movies? The word seems to be that the galaxy can be crossed in only a few hours but there are inconsistencies that contradict this (Dark Force Rising p.212). Is it possible that the travel time was merely a part that gets skipped so the plot could develop at a brisk pace? Are there any correlating sources to confirm that traveling accross the galaxy can be done within a day? The movies don't seem to tell us much though the speed at which they whisk the audience from one scene to another does make it seem like it would only take a few hours but still the lack of specificity is worth noting.--Caesius 02:35, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

  • 100 million times the speed of light is too much. It should be somewhere around 85 millon. s there a source or is this just speculation? See Talk:Hyperdrive. -Bredd13 (I am not logged on)
