Quoting Dinoff, reply 10possiblly but i believe that the main problem is that the game sees a ship as being in a gravity well. so long as its in that well it cannot cross into the next withought first going into phase space.
If all the planets were connected to one another that wouldn't be a problem. You could just phase to any you wanted when you are next to it.
Right now, are phase lanes ways of connecting one "area" to "another"? Even if the galaxy and universe has like 100 planets and i can zoom out, when the battle is raging im still in only one gravity well. Hmmm..... I wonder if you could like link areas, i mean link grav wells? What if you had ten phase lanes between two planets instead of just one? or what if the wells were like overlapping, instead of being like far apart? Would you still need phase lanes or some transitioning sort of mode to get from one to the other?
And right now, when my ships fly out in a battle out beyond the well, how far can the ships really go? I mean, right now i just sort of fight the battle and get back to the well as quick as i can, so i have no idea how far out they can go, but what if i kept going? Haha... i mean, maybe not the "whole" fleet right, just two or three ships to see how far they can go. That would be interesting to see. Maybe the devs know all this, they designed it, so im certain that what appears new or unfamiliar to me, is of course old knowledge to them.
Anyway, i still think it would be cool, even if its not possible. Haha, just makes it that much more enticing, not being able to really make it happen.
