FTL override jumps your ship immediately back to the Battlestar Galactica CIC or Basestar CIC. The spinning up the FTL drives takes just as long as a normal jump (i.e. jump time is not influnced bvy your skill levels), and is slowed down by enemy fire just like an ordinary jump. However, you only make ONE jump and immediately are in the Galactica CIC or in the Basestar CIC depending on your faction. This costs no tylium and saves time, but does not get you out of dangerous combat situations rapidly, despite the misnomer. This is a one use item. If you cancel the jump after activating it, this counts as the item being used.
