Wormholes and wormhole connections: A wormhole is a piece of space that looks a lot like null sec space but is not anywhere on the map and can only be visited through temporary connections. A connection generally lasts about a day or until too many large ships go through it destabilizing it.

Rolling wormholes: If you don’t like where a wormhole connection is, you can deliberately move heavy ships through it to destroy it. It will respawn elsewhere pretty quickly. You’ll need to scan it down again.

PVE in wormholes: in wormholes, you can run NPC “ratting” sites like elsewhere but if you can also cause it to escalate to NPC capital ships and earn more ISK. Wormhole PVE is lucrative. 

PVP in wormholes: is usually consensual, usually small in scale, and usually uses more expensive ships since wormholers are wealthy.

Categories of wormholes: wormholes come in categories of complexity/difficulty called wormhole classes. They range from Class 1 to Class 6.
