I've had no sucsess in trying to transition a player form one point in a map and across a gap to another point on the same map. For example:
The USS Warwick interior map has several section that in the Cryptic mission the plauer transits to different points after interacting with an object such as a hatch or ladder. This is also used in player ship interiors.
I have worked around this by creating multiple versions of the same map.
