"I don't know what that means."

"Look, they are practically identical, and researchers have decent experimental results that illustrate that it is possible to produce a state of quantum entanglement in two sufficiently similar objects. They are going to entangle two whole stars."

"I still don't know what entanglement is."

"Jeez! Read a book!" Karter raved. "It means connected, okay? Whatever affects one affects the other. You excite one, the other one gets excited, too. Regardless of spatial separation, they get excited at the same time, in the same way. Well, technically the opposite way, and it isn't as simple as that, but that's the explanation that will fit into your head. The important part is that, with a few fancy measurement techniques and these arrays, they should be able to broadcast data into the star and have it radiate out of the other one, zero latency. And with effectively the entire mass of the stars composed of entangled pairs, it would be able to transmit pretty much unlimited data streams in parallel."

"Is that enough to kill me over?"

"Well, it would certainly represent a pretty significant profit for them. Anyone with a massive amount of time-sensitive data to deliver to someone on the opposite side of the galaxy would want to use it. That is, if it wasn't designed by idiots."

"What do you mean?"

"They built it on the planet's surface! Planets orbit and revolve. Unless they built it on the pole, and the pole was facing the sun--which isn't the case on either planet--then you are looking at a transmitter that is only optimally situate

on those shipments, they've been working on this for over a year. Good luck keeping that sort of thing a secret from your enemies. However. . . if they entangle the stars, then collapse them. . . Two identical, entangled stars collapsing into black holes at the same moment? With stars of that size. . ." he said, scribbling some figures. "Yep, you'd end up with a stable, navigable wormhole. A shortcut from one side of galaxy to the other. Put it up on the hologram, Ma."

The view zoomed out to show almost the entire colonized portion of the Milky Way galaxy, which covered a wide swath of one of the arms. The two ends of the wormhole were marked.

"Look at that. That's a game-changer right there. It would revolutionize interstellar travel, " Karter said.

"Not only that. Ma, put up the VectorCorp routes again, please, " Lex said.

At this scale, the routes were spider web-thin strands of orange, arranging themselves into denser clusters around denser star and planet clusters. The only void was a stretch of space in the center of the display.
