Talk:History of Rheinland

From Discovery Wiki

"The period of the century before 0 A.S. (2100-2200 A.D.) was dominated by the war between the Alliance, composed out of western nations of the earth, and the Coalition, created by the east."

Right, sooo...AS is after sleep. Sleep implies there was a pretty decent duration of time between launch and landing, else you wouldn't sleep people. As I understand starlancer, they had interstellar jump drives, but not interstellar ftl...so they'd be making short jumps, if they were jumping. Solar distances are huge. It would take a while to get anywhere....ergo.. 0 A.S should not be considered the same era as 2200 AD. --Unseelie 10:43, 19 April 2009 (MDT)

Didn't we have this discussion already? A.S. means After Settlement, and according to Starlancer they did have FTL drives... so I would say it took less than a year for the Liberty to get to Sirius, or that's how the previously posted on forums Freelancer timeline implies. --Blodo 16:21, 20 April 2009 (MDT)
