Hence I guess the whole atmosphere inside the ship is ignited, so the people are instantly combusted... am I wrong?

I wonder if the people on that refugee transport would agree with you that the Flahpak is a downright pleasant weapon in comparison to other ways.
Well... not exactly... I was rather thinking that the ship is coverded in fire, than dies out almost instantly, like a "wave" of fire from the front of the ship to the aft... This way the "instant atmosphere ignition" could still hold...Originally posted by Raptor
And the fact that there is fire pretty much rules out the instant ignition therory, which would consume all the oxygen. Fire all over the place would be much more indicative of a slow burn...

I have no idea if its true or not but its possible the temperature in which oxygen ignites is lower than for people, so the flash fire would burn up all the oxygen but not necessarily kill all the crew, they could be left horribly burned for agonizing minutes before they died of asphyxiation.
