  Sure, if you need a signal!
  Besides, it's been stated explicitly that M-particles don't block visual
radiation. I can buy a $9 laser-pointer from "Target" and stick that on
the end of a missile and have it always pointing at the mothership and
'burst downloading' data as it flies.
  But that isn't really necessary. Just use a "Space Tomahawk" given an
image of its target to hit!
