"While the standard fusion engine utilized a specific impulse of 130,000 seconds, in 2214, RSI unveiled the Poseidon, the next generation in fusion propulsion design. Capable of achieving speeds close to 18,600 miles per second, or 1/10th the speed of light while increasing the specific impulse to 375,000 seconds, the Poseidon also feature augmented hydrogen-scrubber technology in order to better facilitate fuel collection while in flight.

As you can see from the exploded diagram on the left, the engine consists of three micro-reactors hardwired into a series of relays and scrubbers. During flight in deep space, the scrubbers collect hydrogen which are [sic] then filtered and funneled into the fusion reactors. What was particularly ingenious about this engine was the Terrestrial Atmospheric Applicators (TAA). These applicators could be activated when entering into a foreign planets atmo and the engine could extract necessary elements from the air, thus maintaining its fuel rate.

Unfortunately, the first generation of these engines did suffer from a recurring parts malfunction in the disposal of waste at the comple- [...] of fuel fusion. The back-up of potential toxic chemicals would... "
