First Previous Next Last

It was not previously discussed what sort of energy weapons the Tajarans had. Just that they had them, and they were green. So yes... particle beams! Which are also a potentially real thing. Of course, wikipedia also lists phasers and disruptors under particle-beam weapons. But still! They have built some real things that kinda worked.

BrickVoid: I know masers are a thing that they have already built. The one I knew of was so big it was not really what you'd call mobile. It could, however, apparently melt through multiple materials simultaneously. That's all i remember of it. :D
