Tinvyma Movidoanor (Tunnel Drive)

Poku Afirmu (Clan Crest)

The Poku Saeruo Degonjo also known as the Poku'vonai use wormhole generating drives for propelling their ships FTL. The name of the drives comes from the fact that the drives tunnel through space.

Tinvyma Movidoanor

The Tinvyma Movidoanor (tunnel drive) creates Wild Wormholes that allow the Poku'vonai to traverse long distances.

Once the wormhole is established, the vessel enters it. Other vessels may enter wormhole ahead of the ship that created the wormhole, or with it. All vessels entering must have HS-SS1-E739/00 Anoka Udano (Gravity Shield) to protect them during the transition.

Created wormholes collapse on their own after one minute. Or the ship that created it can trigger the collapse after they pass through the mouth. This is not a recommended action.

Starship
Class Charge time Mouth Size (Radius) % of Ship Travel Distance
A 60 min 100 meters 5 10 LY
B 30 min 100 meters 10 10 LY
C 60 min 300 meters 15 15 LY
D 30 min 300 meters 20 15 LY
E 15 min 300 meters 25 20 LY
F1) 60 min 6000 meters 35 30 LY
Small craft
Class Charge time Mouth Size (Radius) % of Ship Travel Distance
AF1-P756/00 30 min 25 meters - 5 LY

Note: The minimum distance that Poku'vonai Tunnel drives can travel is 1 AU (150 million kilometers (93 million miles).

Components

Focusing Array

The focusing array on Poku'vonai vessels retracts during combat to protect it from damage. It is this array that targets and creates the wormhole. It is designed to handle the output from the following generators.

Heim Force Generators

The Tunnel Drive contains a pair powerful Heim Force Generator. One is configured to generate 'gravito-photons' and the other 'anti-gravito-photons'. After the formation of the wormhole the output of these generators is used to shield the vessel from damage during transit. See: HS-SS1-E739/00 Anoka Udano (Gravity Shield)

Dark Matter Generator

This generator is designed to create and contain Nonbaryonic dark matter.

Baryon Particle Generator

This generator designed to create and contain Baryon particles.

Tachyon Particle Generator

This generator is designed to create a power beam of Tachyon particles.

Mouth

The entrance to a wormhole is referred to as a mouth. The size of the entrance is dependent upon the amount of energy in the engines.
