Would anyone mind if I turned Impeller wedge and Impeller band etc. into redirects to this one, and concentrated the information here? Seems kinda useless to have a bunch of seperate one-liners explaining various parts of the same technology... -- SaganamiFan 05:15, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

HH10 Glossary[]

  • Alpha nodes—The impeller nodes of a starship which both generate its normal-space impeller wedge and reconfigure to generate Warshawski sails in hyper-space.
  • Beta node—Secondary generating nodes of a spacecraft's impeller wedge. They contribute only to the impeller wedge used for normal-space movement. Less powerful and less expensive than alpha nodes.
  • Impeller drive—The standard reactionless normal-space drive of the Honor Harrington universe, employing artificially generated bands (or "wedges") of gravitic energy to provide very high rates of acceleration. It is also used in hyper-space outside gravity waves.
  • Impeller wedge—The inclined planes of gravitic stress formed above and below a spacecraft by its impeller drive. A military impeller wedge's "floor" and "roof" are impenetrable by any known weapon.
  • Warshawski sail—The circular gravity "grab fields" devised by Adrienne Warshawski to permit starships to "sail" along gravity waves in hyper-space. 11:07, June 27, 2011 (UTC)

External links[]

The 2nd External Pages link goes to a page full of error messages. Not sure about the 1st since it said that the sight was switching servers. -- 10:53, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

I removed them for the time being. We'll have to check if we find other sources. -- SaganamiFan 16:37, May 1, 2012 (UTC)
