Stanistani, you already have the simple Pikestaff (Ishidan brand at that). No need to get greedy.

Ummm - hello? I was told to report here to be issued a weapon?

No rush, I assure you, I am not completely defenseless - I possess an evil laugh that could make Palpatine break into a cold sweat... :wink:

I also own four cats. (Or do they own me? Hmmm...)

After all this universe shifting I have picked up a few odds and ends.
Lets see a now, a laser pistol with a violet barrel painted dark red ... well I think its paint. I hope its paint. Needs a computer approved power module.
One Black Travelers Club membership card. Not sure if its valid out here.
One silvery yet living-flesh-like prosthetic arm [creepy factor 12] with an x-ray laser built in [+2 magic] medium range but horrendously low accuracy unless you can see into the x-ray spectrum.
One shielded combat e-vac suit with field portable meson canon [as safe as a claymore when deployed] misplaced the battery
Oh wait here it is ... oh there is a hole in the bottom .... looks like the containment field failed and it fell out .... I hope it wasn't on this planet.

Anyway - got any batteries? :mrgreen:

R&D seems to have given you quite a few things to go along with the standard laser pistol (red barrel).

Be sure to fill out the report forms that you were given describing how effective they are in combat. Naturally the computer gave you these forms.

Hovering about my drone wanders through the armory stopping every so often to scan some boxes or other weapons and comparing it to whats been attached to its frame. A simple message pops up announcing 'Could someone take a look at the mounting ring on my drone and possibly make it better. Im worried that a stray shot would knock off the mount and the weapon.'

After the message ends the drone not stopping to wait continues to wander about, scanning more things and comparing them.

Oy, that's a simple solution, just don't make any stray shots.

re: x-ray laser
Initial aim might be a crap shoot, but you'll see any dust in the air incandescing, and anything it strikes likewise.
And unlike Schlock's adventure, the beam isn't affected by rotating inertial frames. You can walk the beam to where you need it!

On the walking the beam methodology.
Only works on continuous output models and those are usually fixed in place with appropriate shielding and used for industrial purposes.
Well unless you have a whole lot of disposable income and do streaming videos of "cutting things with a laser"

Weapon systems would be pulsed to keep the energy budget down.

A technique recently developed is to use a "visible" low power beam to paint the target and thus allow the system to fire when there is an actual target within range.
Still doesn't prevent incineration of the local topography but does reduce the number of clouds being shot at. :lol:

NOTE: Visible in this case refers to the weapons targeting and/or firing optics and not necessarily that of the user of said system :mrgreen:
