Kinetic Bumper
It looks like a cowcatcher! It hits like a rocket-propelled elephant! This thing amplifies the kinetic force of your collisions by up to a square of the original force without increasing the relative force felt by the user. May not seem like much, but when 3000 newtons becomes 9000000 newtons, you'll gain a new respect for exponents. Also try to remember that your ship isn't invincible – you'll still take the regular damage of the collision. Warning: Deactivate this thing before docking or I swear I'll kick you out an airlock.
