We have one potential, very major problem. Slipstream is rough, the road changes as it flows. Before our slipstream journey was even attempted, a phase variance was predicted. Left unattended, that variance would have knocked the ship out of slipstream and in all likelihood destroyed her. My people came up with a solution, sending a shuttle out ahead to map and send back course corrections.
It was a good idea, but the wrong corrections were sent back, and eventually the drive had to be shut down to prevent calamity.
I think we have a viable solution for that here
...using more than one shuttle to map the slipstream.
