Takes a cartridge of 12 Isolinear Chips, 10 modulation settings on each.
Designed to remodulate itself at the press of a button, this rifle can theoretically take down a minimum of 120 Borg Drones per cartridge, depending on how quickly they adapt.
The number of different cartridges available are still low, as the possible modulations of a phaser are limited by the state of the technology. Due to this, the rifle is still unviable for common use. Starfleet maintains strong hopes for this design as it would drastically improve the chances of surviving a personal Borg encounter.
50 such prototypes are held at Starfleet Command as a last resort in the case of a Borg incursion, however, dispite heavy resource allocation to the project, only enough unique cartridges for 2 per rifle have managed to be made. #borg #fi #Leprechaun #Magic #MagicLeprechaun #phaser #rifle #sci #scifi #star #startrek #trek
