I did put "realistic" in quotes. But this is what is really funny Ulzgoroth, because this is what you said:
It's not the heat of the reactionless engine. It's the heat of the power plant that allows you to run the reactionless engine.
To which Anthony responded, to a comment about reactionless engines no less:
"Assuming your heat sinks are magical, you can suppress your IR output by quite a lot. The problem is that any realistic heat sink will fail in a very short time scale if used to keep your hull cool."
