Jump drive also termed as FTL Jump or Hyper-Lightspeed Jump drive is the central "Faster Than Light" speed propulsion technology that enables instantaneous transport from one location in the locally known galactic space to another. What happens during a "Jump" is that the fabric of space itself is folded and a space ship travels from point A to point B directly. The ship's engine folds the fabric of space itself (via the artificial generation of another dimension beyond the third dimension) which allows the vessel literally transfer itself between two distant points which are momentarily brought together.
