Welcome to the list!

Inertialess drives? Hmmm. An interesting idea. A assume that you are
thinking of something like flying saucers that can make right angle
and such.

I have not heard anyone on the list mentioning it, but it would be
interesting. Especially if pitted against a force using vector movement
Fleet Book).

I assume that movement would be at a fixed rate like fighters. 

Depending on how big a game area is used it might help or handicap the
player using inertialess drives. The list has discussed several times
this effects play. Some of the list members use cm instead of inches for
tactical units (tu). Also, how you handle units moving off the table is
factor. Players who use cm or "floating tables" for off table movement
to run their ships at much greater speeds than those who use inches or
negative consequences for moving off the table. 

If the inertialess drive force is as fast as the force using vector or
cinematic movement, it could be a benefit. If the vector or cinematic
movement forces could go much faster, it would be a detriment (except
