Warp tunnels are the technology that made intragalactic trade a possibility. Instead of taking decades to move supplies between star-systems, it takes a few days. Warp Tunnels operate by bending reality between two locations, essentially folding reality on itself to facilitate extreme, long-distance travel. A light drive with a working temporal displacement field is required for safe transit, as the fabric of space and time inside the tunnels is strained to such a degree that incidents of mutation and other horrors have been reported.
Travel through warp tunnels is incredibly fast. Most journeys between systems are over in minutes, rather than hours or days.
The technology that creates and harnesses warp tunnels are the Warp Gates.
Akkadi Research and Development Group is responsible for the original Warp Gate technology.
- A Dorna family ancestor has been on record for participating in the development of Warp Gate technology.
