5th alpha build of Drox Operative went out today: players can now buy/sell race contacts and buy jump gate activations

What does that do? Will they open up a jumpgate to their home system so the player can go there from any other jumpgate in the sector? Is there a way to manually activate jumpgates?
I take it jumpgates are the Drox equivalent of town teleporters...

Jump gates are similar to the gates in DC and DoP. You have to activate them to be able to use them and they allow you to teleport around. However, in Drox you have restrictions on which jump gates you can teleport to (it has to be in a race settled system), using jump gates costs money based on the controlling races, and you can rebind to any jump gate (this is where you will resurrect to and jumping to your home system is free).

I avoid the jumpgates and stick to starlanes... Unless I'm desperate, which never happens of course (shhh). I really am a stellar player who never has trouble with mobs (umm...) and who never flies so far out of the system that I can't see the system on the map just to live through a nasty mob (let's pretend together!).

Is it still a mob in a space game?

Does that mean the player could potentially fly the distance between two systems by means of their sub-light engines alone, without the help of gates or lanes (even if it takes ages, like it should) ?

It's possible. Anything you specifically want to know.

No. In game there isn't any connection between them except for starlanes, wormholes, and jump gates.
