Actually running out of propellent is a real problem. Gelgoog Marines from
0083 carries detachable fuel tank (me think for propellent purpose). On
Earth when you are running on nuclear jet engine, propellent is not an
issue, but in space, where you have to carry your own propellent... Just
look at Cowboy Bebop episode 4 and 17 when a space ship run out of
propellent, they drift until they hit something.
