Hmm. Attach to the APC, get water, air,  power and comms. Attach 
to a QM vehicle, with a special reloader rig, get ammo, missiles, 
commo, power, air, water and food. In extremis, nanites living in 
your suite keep you feeling morning fresh throughout your stay, AND 
they help to seal wounds, numb pain, remove sweat, etc. When you 
resupply from the provider, you just download a new batch of fresh 
nanites and flush the old ones.  Wow. The things you could do....
