Basic Relativistic Space Travel Type 2 Computations

The ship departs from Earth on a one-way voyage, accelerating outward at a constant G-factor.

The ship accelerates until it reaches the breakpoint distance (D), the point where its fuel runs out and all thrust and acceleration stops.   It then
coasts forever outward into infinity at a constant speed equal to its final terminal speed (β = v/c).
