I'm not ignoring anything - you're ignoring the fact that you inadvertently proved that out of two people, one expected vaporization and one expected fragmentation.Picard wrote:Kim never stated fragments were to be results of fragmentation; also incomplete vaporization, when result of explosion, will create fragments.
The only way to get fragments is by fragmentation - that's the definition of fragmentation. Kim stated an expectation about resultant fragments - that means fragmentation would have occurred. Or, perhaps you expect fragments to spring into being amid a spray of rainbows and fairy unicorns?
1) I NEVER said they expected 100% vaporization, but one that will leave only miniature fragments behind (less than 1 centimeter). Both of them expected vaporization, but not complete one. Except if vaporization is not vaporization if it is not complete.
2) Read above. There is no contradiction, except one that you are trying to create due to your lack of understanding. If torpedo vaporizes 60% of asteroid, it is still vaporization.
