There once was a game they called PrUn
Which players complained was not fun
You play it for years
But nothing appears
'Cos the graphics description is “none”.
When you need to get there real quick
but hyper-power makes you feel sick
Use this reactor
with a 10 charging factor.
It’s a wonderful time-saving trick.
With the Quick-charge FTL Reactor, you see,
Delivering products was as easy as can be.
To market we’d go,
Our sales would just flow,
And the money would come back to me!

There once was an engine so fast,
Quick trade routes left others aghast,
While it cost a little more fuel,
Traders found it was a profitable jewel,
And it left competitors in the past.

A ship that’s quick with its thrust
With spreadsheet about to bust
It charges and quakes
Zips and shakes
The unmatched speed - pure lust.
Something is wrong here, limericks are supposed to be dirty
The missus once wanted to talk,
Complaining my reactor was a shock,
“It’s released too quick,
And if I had my pick,
Evening come, perhaps we can walk?”
I really thought this had a use,
To give my ole engine some juice.
Turns out it’s a waste,
No faster in space,
So now I just hurl it abuse.
The Bases are widely dispersed,
and traveltimes seemingly cursed.
Now asking: “What is the solution?”
Quick Charge for reactors with fusion!
Vast distances must be traversed.
