Battling spaceships is a SF common trope, but how would that actually work with plausible physics/engineering? The talk quickly covers a multitude of important but simple concepts: delta-vee, drive efficiencies, waste heat, practical energy weapons, how to hide, and how to find, distributed capacity, etc. How to create interesting/dynamic stories in this paradigm.
