The Harga Cannon

The Harga Cannon

Built by Dr. Alice Andrews utilizing the metal Hargatite 45. The cannon acts as a ship-to-ship sniper weapon. It is accurate out to a long range and extremely potent. It would be like putting ten photon torpedos on one spot on the shields. One shot, one kill.

The cycle time for the weapon is quite long. However, a charge can be kept in the weapon’s capacitors. This first shot, first kill aspect allows an older ship, such as Stargazer, to continue to be a force on the battlefield.

The cannon is a unique prototype. It has been installed in a turret on Stargazer.

Currently Lt. Reginald Barclay, fresh from serving on the Zhukov, is working on an upgrade to the prototype. (This represents a significant shift to the timeline. Barclay was to go directly from Zhukov to Enterprise.)

As of the Season Two opener, On Ice, we discover that Lt. Barclay has had some set-backs on creating a Harga Cannon upgrade. However, he was able to add a tuning feature. The cannon can now be used as a long range, high powered “sniper” weapon or it can be used as a short ranged, wide beam “shot gun”. This appeared to please Captain Dorgo.
