    Just finished it again there, enjoyed it more this time round, probably because I am more used to his writing this time and can keep track of whats going on a lot easier. I like when he gets into the specifics of the ships capabilities. At the end of the book the Sleeper Service says it's heading for Leo 2. At its normal cruising speed of 140 Kilolights (140,000 times the speed of light?) it would only take 4.9 years to span the distance(690,000 Lightyears) between it and the Milky Way and he says it will take "A rather long time".

    Am I missing something? was there something in Player of Games about it being harder to travel in darkspace? when they mentioned how they were getting to the upper leaf swirl(I believe that's where Azad was) they spoke of it I believe.

    It's something to do with the energy grid, the ships use to speed along, being weaker out in deep space away from star clusters
