I have a theory, if what you say is true, then the cause of X-151 to crash is this:
About 10 minutes from re-entry, captain realizes ship is too heavy, turns on fuel dump.
1 second to re-entry, the fuel dump is still on, heat causes a spark on the dumped fuel, trailing back to the ship.
5 minutes after re-entry, the fuel finds its way to the DGIV and into the fuel system, same time that captain turns of
the dump.
5.2 minutes, fuel fire cut off by fuel dump stop, causing several beams to light and rip apart the wing.
End transmision.

There is another possibility, it's called "I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you."  In this hypothetical but realistice
scenario, the us military wanted complete classification of the laser satillite, so they got to test their new weapon and
take down a supposed threat.

We found a film from the 3 crashed craft, detailing every last moment of the flight, on the X-151, some of the
instruments were cooking up and malfuctioned, and the only thing that could have done that was...a
THERMONUCLEAR LASER!!!

The laser can only be activated by opening the Cargo Bay and it was closed.

MALFUNCTION, and it could have burned through the back, I'm sure nobody noticed because some people don't look
back anymore because their too overconfident in safety.

The sensors could have detected that.

Also if there was a major raise in temperature the computer could've checked that.

But couldn't do anything about it, it would take a while to shut the laser down, andeven an emergency shutdown
would still not have worked as the controls would have been fried, also, if it was facing up, down, left or right, it
would have burned throught the hull and (wait for it)... :hot: your crew is chard coaled.

The laser was pointing in the back so if it fired it would give us an extra boost of speed. :fool:

No, it is a thermonuclear laser, not a propulsion system, in fact, it would have cause the rear to blow up.

The Thermonuclear laser could've worked also as a propulsion system since it was designed to.

I don't know what high Gs could have done. I have done 5.2Gs in a DGIV before (DGIV-2 actually) during a takeoff and the glider and crew were completely unharmed. Anyway it's a shame destiny crashed, DGIVs are expensive.
