New Worlds of Maelstrom
These giant planets have substantial
layers of "superionic water" ice under relatively shallow hydrogen and helium atmospheres. Pressurized ices is the form of supercritical fluids and their surface is composed of large fractions of oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur.
The gravity well of this planet is filled with hydrogen and methane particles. Enemy ships shields and weapon targeting systems are severely effected.
