Gate Incidents, are what the people of the galaxy call the attack on on two of the Gate exits.
In the span of a week the Gates to two minor sectors have been disabled and there has been no communication from them. Aid and troops have been sent, but anything that is sent also loses contact. The Electorite has reassured people that this is a minor terrorist group, however many question the Electorite and worry if they might be another Uprising.
However the crew knows the truth behind the Incidents. It is not just a simple act of terror it is a large scale invasion.
