Here's a scenario,

Whilst surveying the Bolthole wormhole they discover another wormhole/terminus.

They go through it and start the procedure to find their way back.

They find what they think is the locus and entry point and they go through, only to find themselves at one of the twins.

That really would be a back door to the haven quadrant.

Amusing thought, but it would violate the universe assumptions even worse than The Twins do already. In any case, they ought to know by now whether the Bolthole terminus is a junction.

I hace this theory, that one of the unknown felix terminii leads to the talbot or silasia region.
The talbot terminii would allow the three honorverse series be more closely tied together.
The Silasia terminii idea occured to me as i have never heard of a terminii present. It seems strange a rdgion so important to the kingdom and known to be manipulated by mesa, has no terminii.

A terminus in or near Silesia is completely possible. Since the Felix WHJ is a closely held secret with only two of four bridges in even limited use and (implied) only by the Jessyk Combine, the Silesia (or wherever) terminus would of necessity be a closely held secret of the Jessyk Combine and MAN (both Mannerheim and MAlign versions.)

It should be noted that in relative close proximity to the Gregor Terminus of the MWHJ there are three other WH bridges. In fact, there seems to be "hot spots" with multiple WHs in relative proximity -- within 100 LYs or less -- of every terminus of the MHWJ. Having the FWHJ lead to someplace close to a known cluster of WHs wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Was there a previous discussion on the forum regarding wormhole and/or bridge drift over time? (I know the time scales would be astronomical).

Jessyk Combine did the original survey on Felix/SGC-902 termanii

It is an open secret on Mannerheim

With all those Houdini Manpower/Jessyk Super-Cargo ships onthe way back to Mesa do not know that it is under "New Management"

BTW The Mannerheim Defense Force will be tied down with Pirate Warlods and Rougue not compliant OFS Gov's that think RF Planets would make nice vacation spots

Unless the MDF is insane The RF will let Manti/Haven keep Visigoth

IIRC, there's a theory that the Torch-Twins-Felix bridges are actually a single bridge interrupted by the star SGC-902-36-G being currently between Congo and Felix.

Not sure whether that theory was put forth in textev or just on the forums.

My own pet theory is that the Twins are parts of a wormhole junction in formation.

Just on the Forums, to the best of my knowledge.

They use felix on a limited basis, but thwy would atleast try to fully survey all the terminii already. They might be unknown to us but someone does know it completly. So it limits the suprises in the future.
Those ships are there to deal with any interlopers, but do they cover all terminii.
