The Point Defense Matrix is an Experimental Weapon for starships. This experimental weapon coordinates a large volume of fire to protect the ship against threats from all directions. The primary target is engaged as normal, using the Point Defense Batteries across the side of the ship the enemy is on. Once for each quadrant (shield facing direction) that does not contain the primary target, the rest of the matrix automatically selects whatever target in that arc that has the lowest remaining Hull percentage and fires on it.

It may be upgraded like a standard weapon, swapped out for another Experimental Weapon and placed in any other starship's Experimental Weapon Slot.

It is obtainable from the Kelvin Einstein Heavy Destroyer for Federation-aligned characters, and from the Kelvin D7 Heavy Destroyer for Klingon-aligned characters. It can be equipped on any starship capable of utilizing Experimental Weapons.
