The Quantum Core Engine was the first quantum drive developed by Roberts Space Industries to allow starships to travel at nearly the speed of light. First created by Dr. Scott Childress and his team on May 3, 2075, the Quantum Core Engine allowed travel at 1/100th the speed of light.
By 2214, this engine technology allowed starships to reach 1/10th the speed of light. Currently the technology allows travel at 1/5th the speed of light.
