Found your six second link, and some imagery about coffee makers and baseball bats.

I don't know how much of that is hard doctrine about teraport time frames, but it seems like you could get a TADs system running in 6 seconds, and random teraports wouldn't be too effective if you could trail with something decidedly less massive.

As for TADs shooting stuff, I got the impression that they worked like special EM field generators since they work 800 meters underground. In fact there were three overlapping sets of fields in that underground fortress. http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20041007.html

Maybe they really are just pulsing gravitic fields which do propagate through space a normal speeds less than or equal to c. That would explain their utility as weapons against the Dames. The Dames only interact with our universe through gravitic distortions, and millions of gravitic noise generators springing up overnight as the teraport wars began certainly made them unhappy.

If long range gravity field noise producers are the only thing keeping the galaxy safe, then a sufficiently powerful ship should be able to neutralize the gravitic field noise around it and teraport out of hostile space. Punching through the fields like Petey can do seems like you would need to open the wormholes and manipulate gravity fields on the far end before you hopped through yourself. Sounds complicated. And dangerous. Something you'd prefer to do with someone else's battleplate rather than your own.

That, and he can use lots of merely small wormholes instead of one big one like the gatekeepers did.

Big enough to be immune to TAD disruption, but small enough that he can make lots in the standard teraport style.

He could be pointing guns at them but the cheering seems genuine to me.

Per this strip, we know that an shipboard annie plant has a "primer" plant to restart after a shut down.

Teraport cage walls must be unbroken for the cage to work, although they can be open at other times.
