Whatever fields allow a Portal to work, it's ''not'' compatible with Human psychology or biology. Anyone not in hypersleep when a ship transits a Portal will either be maimed to the point that they're not likely to live long, gibbering foaming-at-the-mouth insane, or a combination thereof.

* BlackBox: Averted and played straight all at once: The portals' exact nature isn't quite understood, but according to the ''Artifacts & Faction Tech'' supplement some of the energy fields that create portals apparently are. However, the Consortium scientist leading the research died when his attempt at creating a portal imploded.
