The Inter-systems Augmented Gate
The link back to the rest of the galaxy
The Augmented Gate is the Oblique Trilogies link back into the greater galaxy. The technology is poorly understood, the science governing it almost entirely unknown and the source of a great deal of interest amongst physicists. The Trilogy Gate is the nearest extension of a chain of such gates in several sectors which allow transfer from one region of space to another, far distant one. While the van Horne Drive allows for localised (inter-star) jumps and if stellar conditions are right jumps between local sectors, the Augmented Gates work on a much larger scale. An unknown number of Gates exist, scattered almost at random across space, although only a few have been explored.
