Phased Plasma Gun - Hand weapon
featured on the science fiction series BABYLON 5/1994-98.
The PPG fires a jet of plasma, or superheated gas. The
charge dissipates rapidly when it strikes, so as not to cause
substantial damage to hulls, windows, etc. (like the stun
setting on Blasters or Phasers).
The gun's plasma coil is made of a morbidium alloy, which
is harder than diamond.
Each PPG, except those used by Earth Alliance Security,
have serial numbers etched on the coil for identification
Larger Plasma Cannons were mounted on the exterior hull of
the Babylon 5 Space station, as well as on their one-man
TRIVIA NOTE: The Romulans used a "plasma torpedo" in the
classic Star Trek episode "Balance of Terror". To evade its
power blast, the USS Enterprise, reversed ot warp engines,
traveled backwards and away from the energy cloud until its
lethal payload dissipated into space.
