Scoops# 897 

Name Scoops
Synonyms Ram scoops
About With scoops fully closed, ships like escort carriers and destroyers can reach speeds over 10,000 clicks per second.

Extending scoops is a breaking maneuver, making the ship slow down because of increased drag. Deceleration can be as powerful as 30 Gs. Thanks to the inertial dampening system, the people on a large ship like a carrier don't feel a thing.

Running with scoops open recharges a ship's energy by scooping stray hydrogen atoms. The hydrogen scoops are no use in an atmosphere as they create too much drag.
