|A Beamrider Station showing several beam projector arrays
|The smart particles used in modern Beamrider systems remain tightly collimated over interstellar distances, and when they reach the magnetic sail of the beamrider they transfer much of their momentum to the vessel
|This Beam Station in orbit around the brown dwarf Eps Indi Bb projects powerful particle beams towards beamrider ships, to accelerate or decelerate them, or change their course. Several beam projector arrays can be seen, as well as a dynamic orbital ring which helps keep the station on orbit.
