Exploring

I have been wondering: how do you get to stars without a gate going to them? Are you not supposed to be able to?
We may not be able to predict the future, but we can certainly create it.

as far as i know, there are gates to every star, but u have to explore a system /find the gates within a system to see where it connects to.
(and sometimes a system that looks realy close still is not connected)

Although i think that at the start of the full release, there should be NO gates, Factions should start further away and actually have to build diffrent sort of gates with diffrent ranges to connect the systems in a way they see fit while exploring the galaxy.

That's right!

About gates - we are discussing it ;)

You might make a formation that you start with that allows you to warp to a target star. The warp however, would take some time, give some warning for those in the area, and possibly take a while after being destroyed to be able to use again. You might also make a specific builder fleet, and have that be the only thing able to build. You might also have it follow your fleet, as obviously, you would want to protect it.

Well, you do already have an ability to warp between systems with Motherships (from one Mothership to another) - that's one of the most important functions for it so far. All other connections in the Galaxy - is a thing to explore and find, and it's quite a possible mission, especially if you have a couple other Commanders with you :)
