Experimental Weapons (previously known as Heavy or Heavy Escort Weapons) are a type of starship equipment which can be equipped on certain starships that have an Experimental Weapon slot. Most ships do not have an Experimental Weapon slot. Tier 5, Tier 5-U and Tier 6 Raiders and all Tier 5, Tier 5-U and Tier 6 starships with a Tactical Commander station, 7 weapons, and 1 or fewer Hangar Bays receive an Experimental Weapons Slot and have by default a basic upgradeable Experimental Weapon. There are several types of Experimental Weapon, listed below.
Players who have access to a ship with an Experimental Weapon slot may claim a stock "default" weapon, the Experimental Hyperexcited Ion Stream Projector, from the Reclaim tab of the Dilithium Store (for 0 Dilithium).
