[X3TC 1.2.1] - Hub connected to Trans-Orbital Accelerators

I managed to connect Hub gates to TOAs only in this version.
How can I make use of this? Can I do anything special connecting Hub gates to TOAs, that I can't do connecting Hub gates to other gates?

When you cannot jump to a sector, nor any of its nearby sectors, then getting there (regular flight) takes a long time.
If, however, you can add a Gate "next door", then you can practically jump there.

Overall, that is a tiny difference.

I disagree there. "IF" you feel a need to be in and out of Terran space it may be very useful and could very much help in getting you to max rep with them.
That said, I pump a few UT's into the backwater Terran sectors relatively asap (they tend to slowly creep towards argon space) and it boosts my rep a nice bit as well as properly support their econ.
(^Having a gate there would be nice to kick-start 'Terran-UTs' as well :))
