RE: Stargate

	When the Omnispace novel was written, Stargate hadn't been
released, but there were similar ideas there.

	The concept was that evil Arcane, let by the super-evil
Te'Ess-Arr, planned to get rid of all Spelljamming vessels in favor of a
new planar travel system they've developed.

	The "Stargates" were planar links that could connect the
different (seven) planets in the system, thereby eliminating the need for
Spelljamming vessels.

	The gates were linked to The Bringer of Doom, an old artifact
from AD&D that would basically destroy everything in sight, and open the
gates to the planes, thrusting out millions of demons.  Since the
gates were all linked, each planet would face similar destruction.

	Oh, and before I forget, it also caused a planet to go spinning
out of orbit, crashing into the system's sun, and creating a devastating
wave of energy that would DESTROY THE ENTIRE SPHERE.

[Made for a good chase scene, too - Mod]

	A bit of overkill on my part, but I couldn't resist.

	If you're interested in reading this or any of the other
Spelljammer stories, they're available on the website.
