Bounty Hunting: the Human Expansion
Invented by a team of scientists including Vladimir Grishin the Starboosters have been in use for just over 40 years. The idea behind the technology was to make it something close to a wormhole that would accelerate a ship to approximately half the speed of light from one gate to the next. In recent years problems have been arising the tunnels have started deactivating at random causing catastrophic damage to ships and killing many in the crew if not all. The Galactic Empire has been getting slandered across the Cyberweb, by those who survive to write, about the malfunctions.
