: Since you seem to know basically everything, I'd bet you've already thought of why this doesn't work. (That wasn't a sarcastic sentence, I promise. :-D) Perhaps it's simply the busted fusion reactor, leaking hydrogen, reacting due to the energy beams/blasts/torpedoes coming at it.
: Though this might not seem to work, due to the apparent lack of oxygen, it would, since there would need to be at least enough oxygen to keep people alive for the moment, and enough in reserve in case some major accident occured. Just my $0.02(USA) for you. I look forward to having my idea trounced viciously. :)
personally I think exploding fusion engines go back to most people's conceptions of bombs. I wrote an e-mail to Wong about it not too long ago, hopefully he'll include it in this site in the near future:)
