In normal space, due to relativity, it is virtually impossible to travel faster than the speed of light (299,792,458 metres per second) In order to travel to other star systems within a persons lifetime, methods of faster than light travel or FTL must be used.

There are three known types of faster than light travel in the Farscape universe:

  • Hetch drive: a form of FTL held by nearly all ships.
  • Starburst: a faster but unpredictable form only held by Leviathans.
  • Wormhole: holes in space which can be flown through by certain ships.
