While I was figuring our how fast the various ships in my story can go I have come to a depressing conclusion. The first book is going to have to be around 400 pages long. In order to set up the plot for the next book
Anyway it takes a US Navy Carrier group two months from the Solar System to the Wolf 359 System. This is pretty fast if I say so myself.
Incidentally Wolf 359 is the star New Columbia orbits around. That is important to the story.
Well just checking in and being cranky
