Wow! Shorter? Is that possible, RFTG is a quick play as it is.

Once players know the game, they can often play a 4-player game of Jump Drive in 10 minutes, vs ~20-30 minutes for a 4-player Race game. Enjoy!

But this is not Race for the Galaxy. Some similarities in iconography, world and mechanisms, but greatly simplified.

You can see where they share some DNA (and it's much more than the artwork and icons), but they scratch different itches - and require quite different mindsets.
