The device that was activated during our mission to the excavation site, is, without doubt, a hyperspace gate. We should try to learn more about it.
We have made a more thorough analysis of all the camera shots made during the mission and connected these to the other scientific observations, especially the magnetic field changes. The gate is probably not of Beastman origin, because its technology is beyond their reach. We have a theory that there may be more gates on the planet, but we cannot say how many, where they are and where they may lead.
