Since New-Eden's scientists is continuously studding Worm Holes they could develop some new (T2) modules. Since there are more advanced races (Jove-like) that probably can open them on their own will, some less advanced modules could be:

- WH Desistabilizer: It forces the space dust in a cycling motion crossing the WH and then pushing it back at hi-speed, as the inertia of the particles increases it consumes the critical mass of the WH decreasing its life-time and forcing it to close without having to jump with many Battle-Sips and Capitals to close it, although it takes it time. It is fitted much like a tractor beam.

- WH Probe Scanner: Modified to detect the unique signature of WH, this probe have bonus to find it.

- WH analizer: Show detailed information about the WH: Life-time, Critical mass, where it leads to, and what there is near the WH (like using a directional scan after crossing it)

Hope you like this Idea!

WH Destabilizer - It's called a Battleship with Plates and AB/MWD. Although it would be handy for those annoying K162s, it would just be abused in repeatedly collapsing your static exit until you found something you liked every day.

WH Probe - They're called Core probes. If you really want bonuses, get a T1/T2 scan frig, grav rigs, and sister gear.

WH Analyzer - Warp to WH, click WH, "Show Info", and compare to this site. How long it lasts, how much mass it handles, where it goes. As to what's near the other side... there's only one way to find out! Twisted Evil

WH Probe - They're called Core probes. If you really want bonuses, get a T1/T2 scan frig, grav rigs, and sister gear. -> but core probes, if you dont know, have the same bonus for other cosmic anomalies also... i'm sugesting an specific for WH Probe....

WH Analyzer - Warp to WH, click WH, "Show Info", and compare to this site. How long it lasts, how much mass it handles, where it goes. As to what's near the other side... there's only one way to find out! -> thats why this module is important for some players to have, since they will know EXACTLY how much mass left to cross the wormhole, not just click, see site and have an idea, it is like the asteroid scanner... sometimes is usefull but you still can mine without them...

Plz make wormholes easier for me, in the following game breaking ways:

No.</troll>

More seriously:
1: A module that would just immediately close a wormhole would be horribly broken for pvp.

2: The ability for wormholes to be just immediately scanned down would be broken for pvp, and would reduce your "home field" advantage. I really quite like the balance ccp has struck with the way scanning works in wormholes.

3: Showing detailed information about lifetime, mass, etc defeats some of the gameplay surrounding them. The fact that you can only vaugely know the status of a wormhole unless you have been watching / controlling it is a great piece of intel, and can be used for tactical advantage. Making it completely clear to all would just reduce the gameplay surrounding wormholes, I don't see the benefit.

I have been living in wormholes almost since Apocrypha

1. Well, that module would consume the mass during a time... not immediatly... just a suggestion to improve the Jump,Jump,Jump and Jump... that goes on... it wont affect gameplay.
2. You are right.
3. I still this module is good for Intel ships, and can also be used for tactical advantage... if you find in your WH system a 0,99% WH you can say that probably there are an hostile frigate on your system. Although this module is as useless as a Asteroid scanner since you can just dis-consider the size of the rock and mine it anyway or in case of a wormhole that it is still functional and jump trough it. IMO this will just spice it a little.
