Cryogenic hibernation is terran technology that was developed by the United Powers League. A form of suspended animation, cryogenic hibernation provides a more pleasant alternative to the rigors of long trips through warp space, which is both mentally and physically exhausting. Although it takes a fairly long amount of time to recover from the effects of stasis, the use of CryoStims can speed up the recovery process.
Cryogenic hibernation was first developed by the United Powers League in the twenty-third century, contributing greatly in the colonization of the Solar System. Its most notable use was the launching of four colony/prison ships, the Nagglfar, the Argo, the Sarengo and the Reagan to Gantris VI by Doran Routhe. Cryogenic hibernation kept the prisoners suspended for twenty-eight years before arriving at their unintended destination.
Cryogenic hibernation is still used by the United Earth Directorate, but appears to have fallen out of use in the Koprulu Sector, at least for space travel. However, cryo-storage is used for medical storage and incarceration.
