Pilot (level 5)
Stat: mechanical

This command allows a sufficiently trained astrogator to program their ship's hyperdrive computer to jump to a nearby star system. Using the command with no argument will list available systems.

The ship must be pointing in the direction of that system, and there must be no significant obstructions (e.g. planets or space stations) in the way. Certain ships are equipped with interdiction fields, which (when active) simulate a large gravity well and thus prevent hyperspacing.

The jump takes a few seconds to calculate, during which the ship is particularly vulnerable.
