this development of Gree technology is unique in the galaxy. Resembling a doorframe or archway, the hypergate is controlled by a Gree gatemaster. At the activation of the gatemaster, a hypergate can be used to transport a being from its current position to another terminus, which is itself another hypergate. This remote hypergate can be in the next town or several planets away. In esense, these are personal transportation devices, and would have reduced the role of starships in the galaxy if the ability to create and maintain them hadn't been lost over time. Now, just a handful of hypergates exist, all within the Gree Enclave.
