The navigational thrusters.


The Andromeda Ascendant uses her very large and powerful Navigational Thrusters as her only sublight propulsion. They are fueled by her MagnetoplasmaDynamic Drive system, and are be used in a variety of situations. They can be used to maneuver her with extreme accuracy, so that she can dock securely with Drifts and other space stations, as well as move her swiftly through combat zones. However, they are also utilized to propel her at speeds so fast that she is almost traveling past the speed of light. They are located on the sides of her main Slipstream runners. She also uses them to maintain orbit above celestial bodies. They are very efficient engines, and their power input/output ration are very close to being perfectly balanced, due to the efficiency of matter/energy conversions involving Antiprotons.
