In periods of heavy traffic the Transition region around such a small 'hole may hold hundreds, or thousands of vessels waiting to pass through. probably should be followed by a mention of the amount of wait time involved rather than letting the reader figure it out: 1000x32 = 32,000 days = ~100 years. In other words, consider a flat-space trip instead of using the congested wormhole. Actually, it isn't obvious to me to what extent several craft can be transiting a wormhole during that 32-day interval, but presumably a 100 year wait isn't impossible. Again I'm replying on this one just to make sure your comments aren't lost. This goes back to a discussion of how transits through wormholes actually play out. Stephen « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
