Tech Room Description
The Sol Gate is the first artificial Jump Node mankind has ever created. Using knowledge learned from the study of the activated Knossos portal in Gamma Draconis, this installation was created at the site of the former Sol Jump Node of Delta Serpentis in an attempt to recover contact with Earth.
Each moving component of the installation contains a large subspace motivator core, similar to the devices found in regular subspace jump drives. The interlocking circular motions of the Sol Gate cause these subspace components to begin to interact with one another, eventually creating an artificial subspace focal point in the cosmos, aligning the subspace strings into a coherent tunnel.
This subspace corridor manifests around the severely volatile Sol Jump Node, stabilizing the vortex and creating a permenant Jump Node. Because the Terran device is far less efficient in terms of energy, the Terran Knossos is far larger in scale, requiring four extremely powerful Meson-based reactors to meet the massive energy requirements of the subspace portal.
Additionally, the installation is surrounded by a large construction template ring, which provides non structural auxiliary power as well as a defensive compliment of multiple turrets. The Sol Gate is acknowledged as among the most awe-inspiring achievements mankind has created.
