Re: Star Ship Polaris

What attack scenarios are we talking about here that Polaris would have to defend against? Its missiles being hit and generating secondary explosions?

Being hit by what? A missile with a nuclear warhead of its own? A kinetic kill shrapnel field that will turn the whole ship into swiss cheese?

Of course I don't know what Polaris tech is all about, but I think you all need to be a bit more specific (a) about what is attacking the ship and (b) how likely it is for that to happen.

Sure, there are probably scenarios that are pretty bad, but what are the expected scenarios? Are secondary explosions the biggest concerns in those scenarios?
