E.T. phone home - he can with HyperCOMM
New Worlds Staff, 504.30.05 @ 05:00

The communications system used by 90% of the galaxy's population. HyperCOMM messages are used both to transmit information over the vast gulf of space, but also in ship-to-ship communication.

Unless using a military communications station, the limit of distance for effective real-time conversations is within a solar system. Outside a system, the delay is too unmanageable for a conversation.

HyperCOMM transmissions can be encrypted and secured.
