Rules of the Strike Gate (so far)
#1 The Strike Gate will not teleport metals, nor electronics, nor your soul.
#2 As long as the power stays on, the Strike Gate will extract everything it initially sent, but nothing else.
#3 If power is cut, anything that was sent will remain sent and can no longer be extracted.
So any gear that’s not coming back gets sent on ahead. Kinda like FedExing your swag home from a Con.
Cool. Feels kinda like the informative act-break images in Attack On Titan. (A title which I’ve never quite understood, BTW; seems like it should be Titans.) (Though to be fair, I once directed a Beast Wars episode which I insisted upon titling Code of Hero rather than Code of a Hero. But I had sound reasons for this, namely: Code of Hero sounds moar awesomer.)
