Really? I've never seen Irresponsible Captain Tylor. I may have to hunt up the series somewhere (I think it's licensed). That sounds funny.

Ahh, I see. Difference in terminology. That might work, but of course you can't really protect your planet that well with them as there would be a problem with you getting out through them. I was thinking of traditional minefields, you're talking more like guided smartbomb satellites. And if that's the case, the enemy would just invest in ways to foil the detection signatures. And then you would develop ways to make better detection algorithims, etc, etc.

Really it's just a never-ending circle.
