The Phlogiston Projector is an Experimental Weapon created for Maquis vessels. A few clever Maquis sometimes referred to the exotic gasses of the Badlands by the nickname of "phlogiston" -- an archaic element believed by 18th-century Earth scientists to be the source of combustion. Although scientifically inaccurate, the term stuck around as a sort of slang.

This experimental weapon emits an oxygen-rich mixture of these gaseous elements harvested from the Badlands plasma fields, and ignites them. This violent reaction briefly burns at temperatures comparable to solar ejections, causing structural damage to even the most hardy of starships.

It is obtainable from the Maquis Raider, and can be equipped on any starship capable of utilizing Experimental Weapons.
