What happens when Superman goes near other types of stars like white dwarfs?
Superman LOVES white dwarfs! Especially when they're all furry.

*spit take*

OT, the effects of other suns on Superman has changed over the years (hence references to solar suits and blue stars=more power, etc.). Travelling at warp speeds, a Starfleet ship could get close to a yellow star to power up their token Kryptonian fairly quickly. There's also probably some way to recalibrate or modify the radiometric tranformer to emit a high-level microburst of solar readiation in the proper spectrograhic range, or some such technobabble.

A Kryptonian on your ship would be a huge tactical advantage for all the reasons that Superman is super.
