How does the glactic position of systems relate to the distance between them. Yes I inderstand A2+B2=C2. What is the distance scale used? 1 LY per units?

Actually we don't believe in Pythagoras around here - a diagonal is considered the same as a straight horizontal/vertical line in terms of travel time.

The trouble with this is that we don't have a set means of determining distances, and it's kind of a moot point since we don't use any sort of units for distance. We just use grids, and you can see yourself how many grids away something is from another point.

So how is hyperspace travel time between systems calculated?

Arbitrary units. It takes 1 speed unit X time to cross 1 grid unit.

I dare you to make less sense.

Are you saying each grid is a parsec per side?
