Top 10 Sci-Fi Weapons

Heres a sci-fi weapons list from WatchMojo.com.  Most of these rayguns originate from science fiction movies. The familiar ray gun is in a class of weapons called energy weapons. Its fun watching these babies slugging it out in a good old fashioned firefight. So whats the difference between  phaser laser and a Starfleet type 2 phaser? A lot apparently. Generally speaking phasers emit a laser beam which can be set to stun and disintegration modes. Other factors to consider are size, range and intensity of the beam.

Theres a whole plethora of sci-fi weapons from Phasers to Disruptors including the Ferengi Energy Whip, Lightsaber and Varon T Disruptor and they all have something in common. They all make deadly energy sounds!

I must confess Kivas Fajo's illegal Varon T Disruptor from Star Trek's (TNG episode 'The Most Toys') tops my list for pure evil. This phaser doesn't just kill, disintegrate, stun or even wound its victims.

Instead try imagining five seconds of excruciating agony as Fajo's death ray slowly disintegrates your flesh from the inside out. You might say the Varon-T Disruptor was designed by a pretty warped mind and you'd be right.






Which one of these sci-fi weapons makes your favorite energy sound? As usual... Star Wars is sitting pretty at No 1. Now why is that I wonder?

Worfs Secret Fear

In Star Trek's TNG episode, "Coming of Age" Wesley and Worf discuss facing their fears while on the USS Enterprise-D holodeck. But its not actually divulged what Worf's "secret fear" is. So lets make an educated guess.....















Tribbles!!! 


Could this be true? Do Tribbles really have what it takes to spook Warrior Worf?

Yarnek

Yarnek is a metamorphic rocklike creature with clawed hands and several glowing eyes in its head. He appears on planet Excalbia in Star Trek's classic 77th episode 'The savage Curtain.' When the creature materializes we see eyes which flash in sync with his voice.

The rock entity announces that the planets Excalibians wish to conduct an experiment to determine which human philosophy is stronger — good or evil. To spice things up, the Excalibians, as well as the crew of the Enterprise are allowed to witness the drama but cannot interfere. The test will be a simple one of survival. In order for the exercise to begin, Yarnek uses his illusionary powers to create a place on his boiling planet where the USS Enterprise crew can breathe and battle it out.

A battle of wits ensues pitting Kirk, Lincoln, Spock and Surak (good guys) against four of the galaxies notorious minds in a fight to the death. During the war games, various battle strategies are played out truly testing Kirk and Spock's belief in Peace. When the fight ends, the Excalbian reappears and announces that while evil retreats when confronted with force, there is no great difference otherwise between the two philosophies.

What do you think distinguishes good from evil?

Does the end result justify the means??

X-Men Xavier

Patrick Stewart is most widely known for his roles as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation and its successor films, as Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men film series, and for his prolific stage roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Stewart's character, Charles Xavier, is very similar to Picard and himself, "a grand, deep-voiced, bald English guy" aka Professor X, the leader and founder of the X-Men.

Throughout most of his comic book history, Xavier is paraplegic, although his body houses one of the world's most powerful mutant minds. As a high-level telepath, Xavier can read, control, and influence human minds. Stewart has also since voiced that role as Xavier in 4 video games including: X-Men Legends, X-Men Legends II, and X-Men: Next Dimension. Truly he is one of the most powerful telepaths in the Marvel Universe.
