Geek stuff, sci-fi... Since all you boys and girls watch Star Trek: "Physicists Nicolae Nicorovici from the University of Sydney, Australia, and Graeme Milton, from the University of Utah, have proposed that devices called superlenses could be used to create a type of cloaking device. Using a principle called 'anomalous localized resonance', superlenses placed very close to a small object could mask its reflected light waves by resonating at the same frequency, much like how noise-canceling headphones mask sound waves by creating a sound that is at the same frequency but inverted in phase."

umm... the photon torpedos did not create an ionizing gas, it was their impulse engine exhaust.

Raction from anti-matter/matter produces ionizing particles e.g. high frequency photon particles.
