@QuakeIV Only military ships need to be maintained. Civilian ships are fine, so by making gates civilian components you should be all good.

Except that then you couldn't send military ships through them.
That's how jump drives work.  The jump gate component wouldn't need to work that way.

And of course you could also modify civilian jump drives to have a smaller military capacity.
You might keep your proper military jump ships with your fleets, being maintained along with them, or fit a jump drive to a ship that is designed to operate as a singleton.
It is the freighters that move back and forth all the time where that is really impractical. I would like for these kinds of trade-offs to exist, having different options to explore.
