zimbach: The trouble with those xenon ion drives is the long burn times required to accelerate any reasonable amount (which also quickly depletes your electric charge reserves), and you can't engage time warp while you're doing that so you have to grind through in real time..

You can do a 'physical warp' up to 4x, but even with that it still takes a long time.
