Neyomal Jump Gate

The Neyomals developed Hyperspace Jumpgate technology to allow ships that
can't afford to install hyperdrives, enter hyperspace. This was originally
achieved through these Jump Gate structures, then later through their larger
ships. These Jump Gates consist of four Pylons with scafolding like constructs
running between them and a big open space in the center. The portals open
up in the center and ships pull through. On both ends of each pylon is a pulse
cannon so if an unathuorized ship uses the Jump Gate it can be destroyed
immediately. The Jump Gates allow ships to enter hyperspace faster than any
Neyomal ship can travel by itself. Ships that have hyperdrive motivators can
go wherever they wish because they can drop out by themselves. However ships
without their own hyperdrives can only travel between Jump Gates, from one
to another.

When experimenting with new Jumpgate Technology, that would let even ships
without hypoedrives go anywhere they wish, The Neyomal accidently uncovered
the secret of inter-dimensional travel. They dropped into 'realspace' in the
Palvar Sector where they encountered Kashan People. During the course of the
encounter Kashan spies afixed themselves to the Neyomal ships on small fighters.
Through tickery and espionage, Kashan thusly managed to get ahold of partial
plans for a Jump Gate. They then began experimenting with the designs until
the successfuly built HyperJump-1 and then built another one and closely
guarded them. However the Neyomal re-entered relspace through the Jumpgates
and began terrorising the galaxy.

Game Notes: Jump Gate Multiplier: x 0.5
            Entering hyperspace: When using the jump gate to enter
            hyperspace, the astrogation officer on board the jump gate
            itself must make the required Astrogation roll. On a Wild Die
            roll of 1, reroll on the table:
                Reroll                Game Effects
                1 - 3                gate operates normally, hyperdrive
                                multiplier is x3 (not the multiplier listed
                                on the ship)
                  4                gate miscalculates, increase hyperdrive
                                multiplier to x4
                  5                gate fails to open
                  6                gate collapses, knocking ship off course
                                and unguided into hyperspace
            Exiting hyperspace: If a starship has its own hyperdrive
            motivator, then it may drop out of hyperspace as it normally
            would. If a starship lacks a hyperdrive, then it must rely on
            the gate at its destination to be open when it crosses that spot
            in hyperspace. After a successful entry into hyperspace at the
            starting gate, roll the jump gate's communications officer's
            Communication skill at Moderate Difficulty. On a mishap, the
            communication fails to arrive at the destination gate in time
            and the starship is trapped in hyperspace forever.
