I'm about to start Mission 2. On the Space map there is a hex with a starburst and a door. There is also a token with similar artwork. What is it, and what is its effect. Also, could someone point me to a place in the Rulebook or Storybook where this is described? I keep looking through the books and can't find it.

If you're talking about the blue starburst with a door icon on it, those are "teleport" style doors (I'm not sure where I got this name from; I think it might have been mentioned by someone on the forums somewhere). They act just like normal doors and block LOS, except instead of being adjacent to the door to see through it, you have to have your agent on top of the door hex. Ruleswise, they are mentioned as an aside on page 9 in section 5.1 of the rulebook (though not by that name; they are merely described as a door on a hex there).

The tokens allow you to add doors to the map to move between otherwise discrete areas (Mission 2 does this to create a double doorway instead of a single door into the ship).

That's easily explained: look at the rulebook, page 5 In the components list, right column, 5th point from the bottom, it says: "3 Door Teleport Hexes Overlays". So that might be where the name comes from

Skaak, Dom, thank you. In Mission 2, the 2 Teleport Doors are adjacent, but in Missions 4 and 5, the a couple of Teleport Doors are separated by several hexes. Since these are "teleport" doors, can Agents or aliens teleport between doors?
