Is it just me, or did she get the idea to broadcast a TAD from a distance by projecting it through a wormhole?

This is either genius or idiocy.

Time will tell.

I'm waiting for Kevin Andreson's (Prime), and Ellen Foxworthy's projects to interfere in interesting ways.
Alternately, I'm waiting for Jengisha and Kevin Foxworthy to meet in a bar, and gripe about their bedmates unpleasant tendencies to climb out of bed and go right to work.

If "teraport a tad" was something that would work, you'd wonder why Petey isn't already doing that. The most obvious problem though is that Terraporting to Andromeda is expensive to begin with, so the TADs would need to be built in galaxy to be efficient, which makes them vulnerable to enemy attack and further resource constraints.

Teraport a deactivated TAD generator with a timer that activates it a few microseconds after it arrives. Simple.

It might be possible to use the input to/from the TAD generator to adjust the wormhole generator in realtime to counter the effects of the TAD generator.

For that TAD generator only, of course.

Think bigger. Create a TAD generator powerful enough to gain complete coverage over the Milky Way and all nearby surrounding galaxies. Prior to activation, broadcast the TAD compensation key galaxy-wide so that it doesn't disrupt teraport activity within the Milky Way. It doesn't matter if the Pa'anuri also get the key, as knowing it won't help them to not be disrupted.

Is the TAD field FTL?

with the comparison being ‘a Gun that shoots TAD’, the teraport TAD is going to be a remotely created TAD field, and one that can make for an obnoxious weapon. For dealing with andromeda, sweeping a TAd field remotely across the galaxy one sector at a time may be cheaper than saturating the galaxy with TAD creating devices.

Now the hemisphere ships with tad-proof capacity make sense. If you can remotely interdict Teraports around Earth, such cages can secure transit routes against third parties trying to remotely disrupt earth transportation.
