However, part of me thinks these wells just might be interconnected among the realms of FTL. Kind of a`la the pipeworks in Super Mario. You go in at point A & show up at Point B or something along those lines. It would be a rather useful mode of transport, nice & stealthy.
I had the same thought. It’s just so strange that they would explicitly show the wells if there wasn’t a meaning for it. Also, it could be an explanation why August thinks so highly of water. Or maybe it’s just recurring object (I’m trying to remember the exact expression for those type of objects, like the grandfather clock in Charmed … *blackout* 🙁 ).
