As I was creating a fan page for the Jovian Republic I noticed something disturbing, there is a potential that any two Jovian moons could be as far as 47.7 million km away from each other. This means it will take roughly 3 min for a message to travel between these moons (if Jupiter wasn't in the way of course) and much longer to travel (not far cast as this is the Jovian Republic). My question is, if one of Jupiter's moons are being invaded by some outside force (take your pick, the Jovians have LOTS of enemies), and the local garrison was completely wiped out, how long would it take for re-enforcements to arrive in the system using non FTL travel?
