More of a Game Mother question but I didn't think this was a GM Only kind of thing so I'm posting it in General.
Is there a source (if I hadn't missed one in the core rulebook) that talks about travel times in the ALIEN universe and how to come up with them?
For example, in the scenario I'm working on right now I have a star system where there's a couple of jobs lined up for the PCs. One of the jobs takes them from an inner terrestrial world to the asteroid belt and back again.
For simplicity's sake, we can say this particular system is kind of like our Sol in terms of the distance between the inner world and the asteroid belt.
I'm trying to come up with how long a journey will take and think of whether or not FTL would (could?) be used to shorten the journey.
I tried looking at Real Life distances between Earth and the asteroid belt and how long it took what spacecraft we launched so far into that region and beyond and then take those times and shorten them with FTL and Stasis in mind, but it's kind of a headache to do that.
I should have thought that something like this would take maybe only a few days at most, due to FTL capabilities and how fast the marines got to Zeta2 Reticuli from Earth in the second movie but I really can't tell.
