I remember experiencing (reading, I think) a science fiction, or space opera, story in which the main characters are on a ship, perhaps fleeing from someone, and the use a Hyperspace jump to get to the other side of a nearby planet. Character 1 thinks they jumped through the planet, but Character 2, who performed the jump, reveals that they actually jumped around the planet.
I think that it is a Star Wars story, since most of my Science Fiction/space Opera reading have been Star Wars, but it could be something else as well.
In which Sci Fi story is a FTL jump used to reach the other side of a planet?
The Star Wars Wiki contains an article entitled Precision Hyperspace Jump, which this could qualify as. The story I'm thinking of is, however, not listed under Appearances in this article, because I have not read any of those books.
On suggestion in comments, I've tried to recall a few more things and listed them below. I am 100% sure of these details, though.
- It most likely took place in the post-ROTJ Legends.
- The person performing the jump may have been Jaina Solo
- The person reacting to the jump may have been Jacen Solo, but could also have been someone else.
I seem to recall that the conversation between the two characters went something along these lines:
Person A: "You jumped THROUGH the planet!? How is that even possible!?"
Person B: "Not through. Around. [something about how he/she did it]"
Of course, this is not actual quotes, but rather a recollection of the feel of the conversation after the jump had been made.
