|TestBeams||Test For Beam Weapons|
|Test Projectile||Test For Projectile Weapons|
|Test Tracking Projectile||Test For Tracking Projectile.|
|Comm Laser||In times of need the ship's powerful communication laser can be put to use as a makeshift weapon|

|Orbital Laser, Orbital Mega Laser||Energy from the station's power plant is stored then discharged in a brief concentrated burst|
|Pulse Cannon||Energy from the ship's engine is stored and released in a rapid stream of pulses. Since the pulses are brief, only a modest amount of energy storage is needed making this a lightweight weapon. Designed for small craft, further weight reduction is achieved by having only a limited mechanism for targeting, as the whole craft can be used as a targeting mechanism.|
