Fusion reactors are what power the majority of space vessels and stations of the younger races. Fusion reactors use the principle of Nuclear Fusion, the same source that stars use to generate energy and heat, to channel and provide power and propulsion to ships and space stations. These reactors can range from small enough to be put on a Starfury fighter, to massive reactors providing energy for millions of inhabitants in a colony. As an example, Babylon 5's Fusion Reactor Core occupies much of Yellow Sector, which occupies 3 km of the over 8km long station.
