It also wouldn't "interfere" with sensors or anything similar as we regularly with our current technology observe things through and past Nebulae.

Small coulds of dust like those claiming the title of Nebulae in this game would be quickly sucked into the gravity well of the nearest large asteroid or planet and .... yeah ... I better stop now.
Yeah... my inner astronomer dies a bit inside every time I play this game.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.
