Re: How do Starships stop?

Since they can cancel inertia inside the ship, maybe they can cancel it outside, as well? Perhaps the inertial damping fields can be extended to affect the entire ship's mass and affect it, accordingly.

So they just have the Impulse Drive stop "pushing" the ship and then cancel the vessel's inertia to the point it "stops" (matches the velocity).
