Your nation started a war. What did you think that meant?
We don't want to kill you. if you die you can't tell your government what we are doing to their fleets supplies.

Yes. The collectors are used to cook out various materials and those are radiators in back.
It's pretty amazing that this is page FIVE HUNDRED of this wonderful, epic story.
