Well, a used up PPG contains an inert ball of hot iron. If you passed enough coolant though you could use it as a heat dump. Though you will likely need to provide significant external power to maintain the PPG's spatial distortion field.
A more significant problem may not the heat sink itself, but transporting the heat away from the shield generators quickly enough. Cube/Square problems can occur if they have to over a certain size and completely enclosed.
Well like I said before ...the problem comes from the Spikes ....the Power-supply can't handle the Load needed so it overheats and shuts down.
Solution Upgrade the power-supply or Add more of them in Series to help handle the load.
Hey think about it for a sec ....these are using Tech that's over 1000 years old While Faey tech isn't any more Advanced the Karinne Tech of a 1000 years ago .....they have made a lot of refinements and Miniaturizations of it in that time.
as well I'm sure to design some Killer Heat dissipation devices. and Jason is a Wiz at adapting Faey tech to use's it was never originally intended for <G>
so I could See Jason Mating Karinne Tech to Faey modern Refinements to create Metaphased Sheilds that can Take a licking and Keep on Ticking.
Beside How do we know that the Karinnes never solved this problem? they allready may have.... and it just that this Scout wasn't updated before the attack that killed them......
We also still know little about those Prototypes on the moonbase.
and they Are Warships
Also what kind of Tech do the Kimdori have ?
Remember the Denmother Told jason they were only repairing the systems on the scout ship not adding to or upgradeing them ...as it needed to appear to have been sitting around hidden for centurys waiting.
