Alien gates GalNet
General term describing trans spatial gates of non-union origin.
artificial constructs usually but not always found in deep space . The construct / device is a "gate" when it allows travel via another time space continuum. In most cases these gates connect two points in real space and create a spatial short cut. There are also gates / rifts that allow access to other spatial conditions. The word alien is still used to associate the device / construct with a society, culture, species that is not Union. But the word alien is fading and usually replaced by the term "xeno".
There are trans spatial gates associated to three distinctive cultures (found so far)
- There are the Traveler Gates , the gates the Travelers made available to the Golden .
- The Ring gates (Only two known gates exist) the ring gates appear older than all the others and are substantially larger than the other known gate types. (The The Ring of Algorm is one and the connecting gate in the Pictu galaxy the other)
- And there are the gates of the Ancient Gate Network . Two distinctive 'lines' of AG have been identified so far. The Phoenix Spur and the Line to Avondur
