Intersystem jump drive
- For subspace travel within a system, please see intrasystem jump drive.
Intersystem jump drives are one of two types of subspace drive. Intersystem jump drives enable a spacecraft to enter a jump node. They are generally found on large craft. They were considered too expensive to place in small craft such as fighters except in extreme emergency, such as the Galactic Terran Alliance's desperate attack against the SD Lucifer in subspace.
During the Second Shivan Incursion, the Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance granted the use of fighter-size intersystem jump drives to Special Operations Command for their reconnaissance mission beyond Gamma Draconis, and to the elite 70th Blue Lions during the final evacuation of Capella.
