    Are those actual facts (as far as theory goes nowadays since both don't exist yet) or is that just some startrek/stargate etc. explanation by a science fiction author? (serious question ^^)

    Kinda both. The whole idea of a warp drive is to make the space in front of you closer, and the space behind you farther away, but it would be a gradual process wherein you would still occupy the space that you are "moving" through. Jump Drives, which have no known scientific basis, find some means of teleporting from one place to another. Theoretically if space does exist in a lot more than three physical dimensions a wormhole would be where two parts of space with no seeming relation in 3D space are in fact touching in some other dimension, and if one could "jump" that gap, it would seem like teleportation from a 3D frame of reference.

    Sci-fi tends to follow similar setups. Star Wars and Star Trek have means of circumventing light speed, but they can't just ignore physical mass. Battlestar Galactica has a teleporter. You were there, now you're here. It's never explained, but it fits the concept of a jump drive. That's definitely what SE is doing because you can build a grav drive and cheat physics but you still have to go around a planet, while you can do a blind jump 200km forward into one and just arrive on the other side.

    I love the jump drive effects!
    It would also be cool if these effects would appear at destination too, so you can see that an enemy ship will be a few km from you in a few seconds.

    its nice isn't it.... I've never come across a game community that is so happy to blame YOU rather than admit that the game or the devs are at fault.... its pathetic and this game will get nowhere with that defensive type of attitude.
