I got into a discussion with a friend today regarding the relative effectiveness of hull armor vs Nuclear Dampers for protecting a ship.

We are trying to design an 800 ton armed explorer/transport vessle. Cost and TL is no object.

I want to use heavy hull armor because for a small ship it offers the best all around protection for everything but meson canons.

My friend wants to include a TL 15 nuclear damper because he doesn't want to build a military ship, yet he wants to include a 50 ton bay with a fusion canon.

I was wondering if any of you naval architects out there had weighed the difference between the two.

When I die I'm going to donate my body to Science Fiction
