Well, you can get out your calculator and try to figure it our yourself, or you can use my handy Travel Time Calculator.
How To Use The Travel Time Calculator
All you need to use the Traveller Ship Travel Time Calculator is the distance you wish to travel and the Acceleration Rating (M-Drive Thrust Rating) of your ship.
You can find the Maneuver Drive Thrust Rating in the stats listing for the particular ship, but for reference:
|Scout (Type 1A)||2G|
Next, you need to know the distance you want to travel. Here are some examples:
|Glasgow to Edinburgh||67|
|International Space Station||400|
|New York to Los Angeles||3,944|
|Earth to Moon||384,400|
|Minimum Safe Jump Distance
|Earth to Mars||225,000,000|
Keep in mind that the calculator figures the constant acceleration to the halfway point, then constant deceleration to the final destination.
Of course, ships don't have to travel full speed; a Patrol Corvette can go 1, 2, 3, or 4G. Of course going slower means the travel time increases.
