Hyperspace vs. Distance

No, what I said was that *time* works about the same way in
hyperspace, not distance, nor that there was necessarily a proportional
1-1 corrolation between realspace and hyperspace. There's still some
distance involved in hyperspace, yes, though again there isn't always a
1-1 corrolation. It takes 3 days to get to Earth. It takes 4 days to
get to Centauri Prime, even though CP is almost twice the distance from
B5. It's *extremely* confusing to navigate hyperspace, which is why
you need the beacons and transfer points, or it's extremely easy to get
permanently lost.
