The Navigation Suite is a set of hardware, software, detectors, etc. made to make interstellar travel much easier to perform, allowing for travel between systems quickly, without having to slowly approach the system, and without overshooting.

  • FTL Drive

It is illegal to travel without an NS, although that doesn't stop criminals from jerry-rigging their own suites, or flying without. These criminals often include pirates, assaulters and those trying to bypass exclusion zones around anomalies and dangerous objects.

Captain Frod of the planet Venus is a famous pilot who flew without many of the critical features of their NS, but they died when they crept too close to a black hole and passed the exclusion zone. Without a general emergency autopilot to fly them to safety, they fell past the event horizon while desperately trying to get their Alcubierre Drive to fight against the spacetime curvature around them. This highlighted the dangers of using a ship without critical NS features and led to galaxy-wide deaths decreasing,
