Summary0019094: One Way Wormholes
DescriptionI feel like there are some interesting map opportunities if we had one way wormholes (especially in terms of scenario building with the Nemesis).

As a very quick example, consider a Clusters-esque map there are some clusters with only one-way entrances and a one-way exit, so you have to conquer the entire thing to get any critical units out.

This might also be useful in a Tutorial mode where you want to railroad the player through several planets for teaching purposes, and don't want them backtracking and seeing reminder text repeatedly.

I can come up with other examples if needed.

I think this idea shouldn't be lost in the pile of other things going on. I think it as a great twist and another element in strategic planning.

Also perhaps wormholes only accessible to certain units or to certain factions. Or temporary wormholes. I think there's definitely some great ideas in this design space, but I don't make sense for 1.0. Doing things like this (or Nomad Planets) would be great for an expansion.
