  Though I was under impression that it was pretty thrashed after the
solar-system attacks from MSG.

  Where did you hear it used 'minofsky fusion'?
  I mean, I guess that could work (whatever it is) though it does make it
kinda sound like it's only as powerful as an exploding M-Engine generator!

  Well, I think in the 'real' UC continuity it was pretty badly scragged
after the Solar System attack in MSG and nobody probably wanted to deal
with the expense of repairing it.

  Probably because: "Who wants to live in an ASTEROID when you can live in
a Colony"?
  My impression was that the big 'roid space bases were created out of the
'rubble' left after the 'roids were mined for metals and materials for big
Space colonies. They're left over, so why not use 'em ?
