The McKay/Carter Intergalactic Gate Bridge is a network of interconnected Stargates placed in the void between the Milky Way and Pegasus galaxies. Developed by Doctors Rodney McKay and Samantha Carter, for whom it is named, the bridge is designed to allow fast, convenient travel between Atlantis and Stargate Command without the need of a Daedalus class ship, or even a Zero Point Module.
Composed of 17 Milky Way and 17 Pegasus Gates along with the Midway Station the bridge represents a major technological development. Despite the fact that the Midway Station was destroyed and several gates have been removed, the bulk of the bridge is still in place and could be rebuilt if needed.
The use of a macro causes each gate to forward the matter stream onto the next without dematerialization. This results in passing through 17 gates only taking a fraction longer then a single gate and no apparent differences. After materializing in Midway you'd enter the other side.
