Default Re: [Spaceships] How should a large station... duck?

Well, a far enough starting point (like a light-year) and a slow enough acceleration (no more than 0.01g) might go undetected with the proper design, but it would be unlikely to get above 0.05c in a realistic setting. Anyway, destroying such a treasure would be beyond insanity, as it is a prize beyond compare. If it is a TL12 civilization, its productive capacity would be phenomenal (a SM+33 nanofactory could produce $3 quintillion worth of products per hour), and it could produce a SM+15 battleship every second with enough materials.
