They packed fast. With their rifles on the backs, snipers came down from the nest covering their tracks. Knowing what the whole situation did to him, Zaharian looked at Kennith. He noticed a shadow of the struggle on the other sniper’s face. Zah cursed inside.

Kennith was just glad to be moving now as they left the nest and headed back to the closest outpost. It would be a long walk but with any hopes Kennith could put the guilt behind him. At least it was quiet around them, no sounds of speeders or radio frequencies buzzing through the air.

They haven’t spoken to each other since they left a nest. Zaharian looked at the holomap, they still had few miles to the nearest outpost. At least going back was without any surprises. Sniper let out a sigh, calming himself down a little.

Kennith sighed after a while and looked up at the sky as he could hear something coming towards them. The slowly rising hum of a ships engine was enough for him to bring out binoculars and scan the sky.
"I don’t see anything, do you?" he asked as he pulled his pair down and offered them to Zaharian as he looked around. A small nagging feeling told him that it could be Republic forces coming in to aid with their mistake but he wasn’t sure about it.

Zaharian took binoculars and before he looked throught them, he started to listen. Something was coming, there was no doubt about it, though it was hard to point at exact location where the sound was coming from. With a frown on his face, Zaharian looked through binoculars. He was scanning for a few seconds when finally he saw it. A Republic ship.
"There." he said pointing at the sky on the North. He handed binoculars back to Kennith. "They’re fast and we’re in the open. Frack, I would give anything for a speeder."

Zaharian let out a long sigh, he wasn’t happy about it either. But Kennith was right, there was no other way to deal with the situation. The kid was in the wrong place in the wrong time. Zah was looking through the scope at still running messenger. He slowed his breath down and fully focused on the target. He stopped breathing for a secong and pulled the trigger. A shot echoed through the valley. The kid collapsed. It was done. Zaharian wiped a sweat from his face with a sleeve, the situation took a toll on his emotions. But it was the only way.
"Let’s get out of here."


Kennith rubbed his eyes as he heard the shot echo out over the valley.  If there was one thing that he hated more than killing people it was killing kids.  But their watchers would be happy and keeper would enjoy one less report to fill. Even if it made Kennith’s gut sour.
"Yeah."  he muttered as he started to break down the nest.

So I’ve recently been writing a search-the-galaxy sort of fic for Star Wars, and realized I needed very desperately needed to know about one very important thing:

Hyperspace Travel

Specifically, hyperspace travel times. 

To help me I found this lovely resource; Black Cat’s Star Wars Hyperspace Travel Times Page. This page contains pretty much everything I think you need to know about hyperspace travel times, at least to make your fic vaguely realistic. It’s a fairly short read, but I’ll summarize the version I use here.

The table above shows base travel times between regions. The original page describes how these travel times are affected by two factors; the speed of the hyperdrive and the location of the destination. 

Speed of Hyperdrive basically means if your ship is more high tech/high quality/newer, it might have a faster hyperdrive. The base travel time assumes a x1 multiplier, so a faster hyperdrive might be only a x0.5 multiplier (halving the travel time, I believe), while if your ship is older/cheaper etc., it might have a slower hyperdrive, e.g. a x2 where the time would therefore be doubled. (I’ll freely admit I don’t use this variation much so I may be misunderstanding it slightly).  

Location of destination is what the top map is for, and basically why I’m making this post instead of just linking you to the page. If your start point is in the same region (e.g. Mid Rim to Mid Rim) or in the same quadrant as the destination, the travel time is halved from the base travel time. The original page describes the quadrants as being delineated by “two perpendicular lines cut through the centre of the Deep Core” , but references a book which is unnamed and has no map. So, I made my own, which is the top picture. It is by no means official, but I figure there can’t be too many ways to cut two lines through the centre of the Deep Core, so I’m probably not far wrong. (HERE is a much bigger version of the top map).

Generally I tend to stick to the Base Travel Times table (pictured), rather than the Specific Travel Times table which is also on the original page, because they have discrepancies and the former covers a much wider scope, so is easier to use. The original page also describes a calculation you can do yourself to figure out travel times, but I’ll freely admit I’m too lazy for that xD

The source the original page cites is “various pages on Wookieepedia”, so I guess it can’t be too far wrong. 

Of course, if you want, feel free to just ignore hyperspace travel times. I can think of one memorable instance when TCW does, and that’s only one xD

(P.S. The observant perusing the larger version of the top map might notice one marker/planet name that looks different. That’s the one I added in, and is therefore completely unofficial. First person to spot it and drop me an ask can have…something xD)

Zaharian asked as Kennith shifted his rifle stand. The both of them were in the same snipers nest watching the messenger run into town. “Well they might ignore the kid. But after all that was a hundred year old dam we just accidentally blew up.” Kennith said wincing as he watched the kid through the scope. “So they might find out that those charges belong to us.”

Zaharian cursed under a nose. The disaster they caused was huge. He looked through the scope at the messenger. He put his finger next to the trigger.
"I can take him down." he paused for a second and added "We can also dissapear from here and hope nobody else saw us. What do you think?"

"Well, I think they might get angrier if we kill him." Kennith said making a face as he looked at the kid in the scope before moving ahead. "But seeing how he saw the whole thing and it looks like nothing is going to stop him from getting to town," he paused as he pulled back from the scope and set his rifle down with a sigh. "I guess go ahead." he said not sounding happy with it being the only ‘good choice’ for them.
