I'm wondering if perhaps it would be better to have only two modes of
FTL?  A lot of the interesting situations in history have arisen when
one culture developed a new mode of transportation, and ran into
another culture which didn't have that mode.  For instance, the Aztecs
| Hindus | East Africans had foot travel; the Spanish | English |
Arabs had that, but also had ships (and the tech that allowed them to
build ships).

If that's the key point, we want to make the contrast between the two
modes as sharp as possible, and I'd think that would work better when
we're contrasting "A vs B", rather than "A vs B and A vs C and B vs C
and AB vs C and AC vs B and..."

(I'm thinking of it from a writer's point of view, in this case,
rather than a gamer's, so YMMV).
