Warcry is offering up an article that details their impressions of Star Wars Galaxies: Jump to Lightspeed at E3, as well as commentary from producer Haden Blackman. An excerpt to follow:
While we weren't treated to viewing a launch sequence, Blackman made the point that it wasn't a big factor in the game. Getting into space is actually quite easy.
"You go to a starport and jump in your ship, we have a loading screen and you're in space," Blackman said. "There's no travel time you're just there, instantly in the action, fighting. Travelling between space zones is just as instantaneous. You bring up a hyperspace map, and you say I want to go from Endor to Lok or Tatooine to Naboo, push a button, you go through hyperspace and you're there."
Well, maybe not directly.
