Jump-gates were created to solve the problem of long distance interstellar flight. Ships too old or too small to house ZPE based space-folding technology can utilize Jump-gates to traverse long distances.

The Jump-gate generates a stable wormhole between itself and a remote Jump-gate, the destination gate is singled out by a process known as "targeting". Jump-gates utilize ZPE for their power generation. They activate when supplied with a threshold amount of energy.


A rotating magnetic field focuses a narrow beam of gravitons, these in turn fold space-time until the space-time curvature becomes infinitely large, which produces a singularity. The singularity ruptures the dimensional barrier in sub-space creating a wormhole through space-time to the targeted gate.

The wormhole allows both points, the point of origin and the destination point, to co-exist in the same time and space. The vessel then passes through the Jump-gate emerging on the other side and space returns to normal. The power for the wormhole is drawn solely from the point of origin.

The actual portal of a Jump-gate appears inside the inner ring when a target is chosen. This has the appearance of light blue haze. The Jump-gate’s glowing blue haze is actually an Event Horizon. An event horizon is the surface of a black hole through which one could pass into a theoretical wormhole; the magic of the Jump-gate technology is thus to form a space-time distortion without the gravitational effects of a black hole.

Jump-gate travel is considered instantaneous. Most commonly the process lasts about 3 seconds.

Extensive Jump-gate networks exist within the Milky Way, Andromeda, and Triangulum galaxies.
