HAND WEAPONS AND OTHER TOOLS




Located on deck 5- Top Saucer Module, the security section of the Agamemnon is the primary operations center for coordinating security activities and related functions aboard the ship.  The section is composed of several offices as well as storage areas.  In addition, the first of two main armories onboard is located there. Typically stored under lock in the armories are heavier assault weapons, explosive devices, and other dangerous weapons. Type III phaser rifles are often stored here.
 
 

In addition to weapon storage, the security section contains a brig area. Composed of smaller individual cells, the brig is designed to hold occupants in a safe and confined area.   Each brig is protected by powerful forcefields, preventing escape of any person(s) inside.  Working in conjunction with the forcefields are complex dampening fields which prevent the occupant from beaming out via transporter, or communicating with any outside forces.

Weaponry for security  personnel and landing party use is stored within a locked, phaser resistant chambers.  All  armory bulkheads are lined with a layer of abalative armor.

Access to each of the weapons storage chambers is furnished via a reinforced door on one wall of the armory foyer.  The clearance desk outside the door is manned at all times by two security officers behind a protective forcefield, whose duty it is to check in and out all  weaponry.  Palmprint and DNA scan insures that no unauthorized  personnel check out equipment at any time.

The main armory has a repair department for damaged weapons and a analysis area for studying new alien weapons or if any technical problems should arise.

A wide range of weapons types and sizes are stored within the armory chambers. Phasers Type I, II, and III stored in quantity, as are the newer Compression Phaser Rifles.  Anti-Matter mortars, Stun Grenades, Concussion Grenades, Timed Explosives, Phaser Power Packs, Molecular Binders, Utility Belts, Photon Cannons and Portable Forcefield Projectors.  Enough hand phasers, stored in racks, are contained here to arm the entire crew, if necessary.  Security armor hangs against one wall.

The chamber door is unlocked by punching a preset code into a panel beside the door.  The security code is changed at the beginning of every duty shift, and is known only to the  shipís Captain, First Officer, Chief of Engineering and Security Chief, and to those security agents guarding the room.
 



Phaser Power Settings
The power levels available to both the Type I and Type II phasers are designated 1 to 8.  The
Type II has an additional eight levels, from 9 to 16, all involving high proportions of nuclear
disruption energy.  TheType III Phaser Rifle has power levels similar to the Type II Personal
Phaser, except that its power reserve is nearly 50% greater.  The Compression Phaser Rifle is
also similar to the Type III Phaser Rifle but it can inflict the same damage in half the time.

Light Stun
Setting 1: Damage Index: 0.  This setting is calibrated for humanoid physiology, and causes temporary central nervous system (CNS) impairment.  It can rendered a subject unconscious for 5 minutes. Repeated long exposures can cause CNS damage.

Medium Stun
Setting 2: Damage Index: 0.  Base-type humanoids are rendered unconscious for up to fifteen minutes, resistant humanoids up to five minutes.  Long exposures produce low levels of irreversible CNS and epithelial damage.

Heavy Stun
Setting 3: Damage Index: 1.  Base humanoids remain in a sleep state for approximately one hour,
resistant bioforms for fifteen minutes.  Repeated exposures can cause servere irreversible CNS and
epithelial damage.

Thermal Effects
Setting 4: Damage Index: 3.5.  Base humanoids experience extensive CNS damage and epidermal EM trauma.  Structural materials exhibit visible thermal shock.  Discharges of longer than five seconds produce deep heat storage effects within metals.
Setting 5: Damage Index: 7.  Humanoid tissue experiences serve burn effects but, due to water content, deep layers will not char.  Simple personnel forcefields are penetrated after five seconds.

Disruption Effects
Setting 6: Damage Index: 15. Organic tissues and light structural materials exhibit comparable
penetration and molecular damage effects are higher energies cause matter to dissociate rapidly.
Setting 7: Damage Index: 50.  Organic tissue damage is lethal at this power setting.
Setting 8: Damage Index: 120.  Humanoid organisms are vaporized instantly.
Setting 9: Damage Index: 300.  Medium alloy or ceramic structural material over 100 cm thick is
vaporized after .50 seconds.
Setting 10: Damage Index: 450.  Heavy alloy structural materials over 100 cm thick is vaporized after .55 seconds.

Explosive/Disruption Effects
Setting 11: Damage Index: 670.  Ultradense alloys structural materials over 100 cm thick is vaporized in .20 seconds.
Setting 12: Damage Index: 940.  Ultradense alloys structural materials over 100 cm thick is vaporized in .10 seconds.
Setting 13: Damage Index: 1100.  Shielded matter exhibits minor vibration heating affects.
Setting 14: Damage Index: 1430.  Shielded  matter exhibits medium vibration heating affects.
Setting 15:Damage Index: 1850.  Shielded matter exhibits major vibration heating affects.
Setting 16: Damage Index: 2450.  Shielded matter exhibits light mechanical fracturing damage.



Type I Personal Phaser
This small, hand-held, easily concealed side arm combines the latest in microcircuitry and energy flow alignment techniques.  Indeed, the new  Type I boast a maximum power output three times that of the first old model.  Characterized by its wafer-thin styling, the Type I Phaser is less than 10 centimeters long and 2.5 centimeters wide.  Inside this slim housing are two power converter chips that can be recharged from a portable energy packs or from an adaptable connector on standard tricorders.  Unique to this design is the hand-print security coding, which  makes each weapon responsive only to a single set of fingerprints.  This surface plate of Type I Phaser contains two pressure-sensitive energy regulators:  the left-hand activator controls non-lethal energy discharges and the right-hand plate deals with more destructive energies.  In normal use, the user selects the amount of energy to be released from the appropriate activator by the amount of finger pressure on the proper plate, thus eliminating the need to adjust settings at a critical moment.



Type II Personal Phaser
When shipís personnel are expecting danger or need a show of force, the heavier Type II Hand Phaser is an appropriate weapon.  With its broom-handle design, this slender and light weapon is usually worn in a velcro hip-holster that doubles as a recharging unit.  The Type II combines two interlocking phased-particle beams in collimator field to produce a single-charged particle beam.  The resulting firepower is far greater than earlier models, and is capable of penetrating the strongest alloy or reflective defensive armor at close range.  By altering the frequency of the beamís dispersal pattern, the Type II power collimator can also reduce the electron flow, generating a simple laser or a variety of plasma like beams suitable for non-combat emergencies when communications or energy transmission are required.  As with other phaser designs, the Type II offers a variety of lethal and non-lethal settings.
 



Type III Phaser Rifle
The Type III Phaser Rifle was designed for use by Federation Security and Marine detachments
in prolonged combat conditions against heavily armed opponents.  Standing 1.2 meters in
length, with extended power packs in the weaponís duralloy stocks.  Extended focusing
apparatus along the barrel permit pinpoint accuracy with the high-energy beam.  Separate
attachments for data links to tricorders allow the use of several computer-enchanced optical
aids, an early-warning system, improved fire-control, and automatic tracking.



Type III-(A through D) Compression Phaser Rifle
The much larger and heavier Type III-(A through D) Compression Phaser Rifle was introduced
to combat  the arrival of the Borg.  It has similar features of the Type III Phaser Rifle except its
beam is  more focused, capable of inflicting damage much quicker and a larger power pack
capacity.  During the start of the Dominion war, the Compression Phaser Rifles gave the
Federation forces much needed firepower.

There is four current versions of the Compression rifle.
 

Version A:
This model of phaser aboard the USS Voyager NCC-74656.  It fires a yellow beam, and is used more frequently than the preceding models.
 

Version B:
Although they all function in the same way,there are several models of phaser rifle available in the 2370ís.  This model features a double-handed grip that is similar to that of its immediate predecessor.
 

Version C:
Type C is constructed of light weight material and can be carried in one hand.  Some models, such as this one, have a single grip. For accuracy in aiming, the user can support the barrel with his or her free hand without danger.
 

Version D:
After Starfleetís initial encounters with the Borg it becomes clear that in order to prove effective against all species the phaser will have to be adjusted.  All models of phaser rifle in use in 2373 can be programmed to automatically alter the frequency of the beam,
making it harder for an opponent to generate effective shields.



Battle Armor
The standard duralloy Battle Armor protects a Marine or Security Officerís lower trunk, torso,
upper-body and head area.  Lightweight ceramic-duralloy bonding and specially treated
reflective surfaces provide maximum protection at long range and even some protection at
point-blank range against a variety of high-energy and plasma beam weapons.  The helmet
itself is equipped with communication and audio pickups, sensor modules and a environmental
forcefield.  It permits even limited exposure to space.



Photon Cannon
To protect members of an Away Team from hostile indigenous populations or to abort a close
assault on a ground installation, Security can use one of several Photon Cannons stored
aboard ship.  The Photon Cannon is a short range, but incredibly destructive, weapon
descended from laser and phaser projectors.  Once the cannon is beamed down, it can
maneuver on a self-propelled platform.  It has access to virtually limitless power from the
command shipís microwave relay projectors to accelerate high-energy anti-photons in a
magnetic chamber.  When the cannon is fired, the stream of charged particles is powerful
enough to penetrate the heaviest armor or energy-screen defences.  Because of short halflife
of the rapidly decaying anti-photons, the Photon Cannonís range is limited to two kilometers.
This is sufficient to meet most ground threats.



Anti-Matter Grenade Launcher
The Anti-Matter Grenade Launcher delivers a less powerful blast than the Photon Cannon, but
it is still lethal enough and can cover a wide area.  With its 300-degree arc of fire and range of
550 meters to 4 kilometers, the launcher is a good supplement of the Photon Cannon when
ground-base Security teams are under attack or wish to provide fire support.  A single grenade
contains 2.8 grams of anti-matter, capable of destroying or immobilizing targets within its firing
arc and range.



Molecular Binders
Security personnel occasionally need to restrain an individual rather than rendering him or her
unconscious.  For this, they use molecular binders, typically in the form of wrist and ankle
restraints.  Microscopic fields of force around each restraining band increase the density of the
air molecules adjacent to the subjectís wrist or ankle.  The result is a strong force field
restricting the smallest amount of movement in any direction.  The settings can be varied
according to the subjectís race and build, but the effect is always that of a vise-like grip.



Security Tricorder
Though similar in design to the standard tricorder, the security tricorder has several
specialized functions.  Default settings probe within a given radius for energy and power
readings consistent with weapon systems in use by hundreds of civilizations.  Data in the
security tricorderís crystal banks identities the nature of a weapon by analyzing these energy
transmissions.  The device performs similar analysis of defensive screen systems, and use
special motion sensors to track the movement of life forms.



Portable Security Computer
Similar to the standard Battle Computer used by Star Fleet Marines, this portable device
provides specially trained Security teams with up-to-the-minute tactical and strategic
information via microwave links to a shipís main computer.  The portable computer can report
enemy positions, movement, and disposition obtained from shipboard sensor relays, and also
has control links to portable motion detectors that can be spread over a wide range of terrain.
In addition, the Security Computer can reliably predict enemy tactical options based on stored
data about dozens of warlike races previously encountered by Federation forces.  The device
also analyzes enemy strengths and weaknesses based on tricorder readings and examination
of terrain.



Phaser Cannon
The Model IV shoulder-mounted Phaser Cannon, is the latest in the ground-to-air defence.  The
targeting and tracking computer is very reliable, that the user only has to aim at the target they
wish to shoot at and wait for the computer to lock onto it then pull the trigger.  The Phaser
Cannon at extreme range can hit ships in low orbit from the planet's surface and is also
capable at maximum power of knocking down large assault shuttles and atmospheric fighters.
However its power packs can supply only 5 shots at full power before needing to be replaced.
The Phaser Cannon has no stun settings.



Stun Grenade
Like phaser weapons, the Stun Grenade has a light, medium and heavy stun settings with the
same effects.  The blast range of a detonating grenade is roughly 10 meters.  Other settings
includes, detonating on impact, or up to a 30 second delay or by target approximately.



Concussion Grenade
A much more lethal grenade.  It can be set from a loud noise maker that can disorient a target
or powerful enough to blast a hole through a medium alloy or ceramic structure nearly 30 cm
thick.  Its effective range at maximum strength is 25 meters, any organic humanoids caught
within its blast range is lethal.  Other settings includes, detonating on impact, or up to a 30
second delay or by target approximately.



Tangler Grenade
An exploding tangler grenade throws out hundreds of strong, sticky polymer threads.  These
threads stick to everything within a 3 meter radius.  An entangled individual can not move until
the threads decay (in 30 minutes) until solvaway is spread over the threads.
