Located in the Gateway sector, the planet Gateway is surrounded by intense time distortions
created by the Guardian of Forever. The planet is an important Federation research station, being used for investigations
into temporal mechanics and historical studies.
In 2387 an explosion on the planet rippled through the Guardian of Forever and caused history
to be altered. The planet and the nearby USS Pioneer were the only things not effected by the changes due to the time distortions
in the surrounding area.
Gateway is located near the Beta Quadrant border.
