Possibly dim-bulb question: does this sucker employ arms in place of hoses to maintain shield integrity during fuel transfer?

I’d think solid bodies could host the equipment necessary to extend/warp/etc ray shielding (or poke out of it like your gutsac out of your abdominal muscles in a hernia) for refueling.

A real world reason to use an arm instead of hose would be that the arm can have a higher flow rate for the fuel.

Also, consider that they are using “hypermatter” as fuel so, presumably, they would need a containment field for it (based on how the reactors are stated as using hypermatter annihilation (like matter-antimatter) to generate power)

I’m not sure what the canon reasoning would be though

Higher flow rate, huh? Good to know-and thanks to both of you for solid-sounding responses.
