The streak drive was a revolutionary hyper drive for starships that was invented by the Mesan Alignment in the early 20th Century PD.

For centuries, the theta band had represented an inviolable maximum for hyperspace travel. By using hyper generators almost twice the size of conventional ones used by most other star nations, the Mesans broke the iota wall and the kappa wall, reducing, for example, the transit time from the New Tuscany System to Mesa from forty-five to less than thirty-one standard days. This made possible a conventional looking, but faster than any existing, dispatch boat design which allowed the Alignment to get news faster than it should have been able to, and to issue and distribute orders equally quickly.

Dr. Herlander Simões was one of the key scientists involved in the creation of the drive before he defected to the Republic of Haven. (HH12)
