A netlink is a major galactic network sent over specialized particles that can penetrate any material without damaging it via a hyper-dimensional flux. The state of the particles is so powerful that no macroscopic object can be put in this state without possibly losing the object and an area around it. A single particle can carry approximately 200 GB of information and travels almost instantaneously, but has a maximum effective range of about half a million light-years without amplification and gate stations.
Increasing the maximum rangeEdit
The primary ways of increasing the range of netlink particles are through amplification (same amount of information on a bigger and denser particle) and gate stations. Gate stations act as waypoints for particles, and retransmit netlink connections in order to keep them alive for longer journeys.
