HYPER JUMP – is a method of traveling faster than light in which space is folded to achieve instantaneous transfer (or translation). Travelers experience momentary “insideoutness.” Hyperspace is a condition rather than a location where all velocity is zero and speed is infinite. Navigation requires complex calculations. Jumping near a gravitational mass (or well) is likely to cause an uncertain exit point.
ICE AGE – prolonged freezing weather with glacial ice that may be caused by a planet’s orbit growing farther from the sun for a period of time or a cooling cycle of the sun with sun spots.

TRANS-TUBE – is a high-rise vacuum tube elevator also used on the space station.
TREYA and all things Treyian – is Annie’s home planet, (originally Traeha transformed over the ages into “Treya.” Treaha read backwards is “a-hearT” or if the “h” is moved to the beginning and read backwards you’ll find it is “a earTh” that has been rearranged.)
