The Alliance Hypercannon is an Experimental Weapon for starships that fires Radiation damage in a 360 degree arc and has a chance of causing the additional effects associated with each of the energy types primarily associated with the three major factions - Phaser (Subsystem Offline), Disruptor (Damage Resistance Rating Debuff), and Plasma (Damage-over-Time).

Overview[edit | edit source]

This weapon was developed jointly between engineering teams from the Federation, Klingon Empire, and Romulan Republic. Design disagreements led to multiple energy types vying for inclusion in the final design, and rather than scrap it when the engineers failed to agree on this aspect of the design, they worked together to allow the weapon to utilize all simultaneously. This has resulted in an amalgamated projectile that closely resembles raw radiation across multiple volatile wavelengths.

It is available from the Andorian Pilot Escorts, Dewan Pilot Escorts, and Lethean Pilot Escorts. It can also be equipped on any starship capable of utilizing Experimental Weapons.
