Now if we can just get something with more electric output per Kg than hydrogen, or generate the hydrogen on-board through a chemico-electrical process, then it is really off to the races.

For example, if Aluminum can be re-processed (and it can, it just takes energy and the will to do it), then the new charge storage Aluminum anode battery (carbon cathode with complexed aluminum ions intercalated), that is completely re-chargeable could be a real contender. Another option is hydrogen from aluminum, that is advancing technology, beyond the mere reaction of aluminum metal with caustic solutions.

Hydrogen generation cassettes could be changed out back at depot.

So could expended batteries that need re-charging for that matter.
