For the Exode saga, rapid transit through the galaxy is accomplished by a system of linked teleportation terminals that were constructed using advanced technology that is available to the bumpha.

There are practical limits to the distance over which teleportation can take place. Sedronic matter can be teleported over the greatest distances, as was done back in September for the zeptite endosymbionts of Yōd, Zeta and the Editor.
