While the people of Krikkit were busy preparing to exterminate all other life forms, the universe was enjoying a period of peace and prosperity. This was symbolised by the Wicket Gate, which was made up of 5 pieces.
The left upright was made of steel, symbolising strength and power. The middle upright was wood, symbolising nature and spirituality. The column on the right was made of perspex, symbolising science and reason. They were joined across the top by two other pieces: the gold bail of prosperity, and the silver bail of peace.
The Wicket Gate is the key to the Slo-Time Envelope that houses the planet of Krikkit and its sun. The pieces of the gate were scattered across the universe, following an attempt by the Krikkitmen to capture it and release their masters.
