Hey!  Angry

Anyways, I think that the EMP theory has been the best so far. And it isn't THAT far in the future, only under 200 years.

They aren't terribly small nukes. They are listed as MX surplus. That would make them W87 warheads from old MX , aka Peacekeeper, missles.  They would have a yeild of 300-475 kt depending on configuration.  I am guessing that either they use a proximity fuse or the enemy vessels are very well armored.  Or it just had to be that way to balance the game.  Lets face it, they home well, they have great range, realistic damage would make them unstoppable.

Well, it wouldn't affect the Podship or the Blade at all, but it doesn't matter since the Podship and Blade don't fire nuclear weapons.

It does however, beg the question--if an earthling cruiser hits another earthling cruiser, why doesn't it fry the other cruiser's electronics?

No. It'd be PDL wars.. with Earthlings.
And THAT is just dumb. Lips Sealed

Arilou mirror match.. that's pretty bad.. but it moves faster than Earthling/Earthling Point-Defense fights across the star system.
