This article aims to provide a complete reference manual for the depiction of combat between starships in the setting and to incorporate the changes approved in the Proposed Setting Revisions for 2011 discussion.
Starships can be prevented from making FTL jumps by targeting them with a graviton beam. This effect is not cumulative (more graviton beams do not make it work any better) and it only works on ships of the same or smaller size class.
Note: This section primarily applies to gun-based starship weapons in the setting, such as railguns, plasma weapons, laser weapons, autocannons, antimatter weapons, mass drivers, etc.
