Weapons & Gadgets

Blasters - Ray gun device featured on a variety of TV sci-fi series.

Blaster Pistol

Used much like the old frontier six shooter, the Blasters shot energy waves that disintegrated or incinerated the recipient of the gun's blast.

Blasters were used by Colonial Warriors on the sci-fi series BATTLESTAR GALACTICA/ABC/1978-80 to stun or blast through the silver armor of the robot Cylon warriors known as Centurions.

The Cylon robot warriors used a rifle shaped version of the hand held blaster models.

Blasters were used by the futuristic policemen known as Sandmen on LOGAN'S RUN/CBS/1977-78 to hunt down and kill any inhabitant of the Domed City who refused to participate in "Carousel," a life renewing process (in reality a death machine for those over thirty years of age). Those who chose not to participate were labeled as Runners and terminated by the Sandmen.
