    :confused: Unless I'm completely mistaken it's the neutrons released in the fusion that account for the radioactivity concerns which on the other hand are supposed to "crack" the lithium (there's your Delta Vega "lithium cracking station") and thus create new fuel for the "re-energizing" self sustaining fusion process.

    In simpler language: Have a fusion reactor without fuel breeding inner lithium mantle you get radioactivity, have one with fuel breeding inner lithium mantle you get more technical obstacles you need to overcome (i.e. "lithium pump").
