Please go read up the thread. What I have said is that we might in fact have stealth in space in the far future, for all we know. I find it hilarious that all the posters here want to chime in about how "stealth in space is clearly stupid," while allowing without comment all the other TL^ technological assumptions that get you swooshing spaceships in space in the first place. It's not hard at all to posit reasons why, by the time you have reactionless thrusters, artificial gravity, and and fusion powered spacecraft, you might have very stealthy spacecraft, too. So the vigorous objectors have already come and gone, I'm afraid. Demanding peer reviewed journal article, no less. LOL!
