Laser rifle - energy weapon, does burning damage. Effective range, 250 meters in any environment. Often used for sniping. Usually required that to be brought aboard ship, the energy pack has to be removed and locked up in an ammo vault.

Bass Stunner - sonic weapon, does non-lethal concussive damage, effective range 100 meters. Requires a pressured environment to operate. Bulky, consisting of a parabolic speaker. Anyone caught in the area of effect for the bass stunner should avoid operating heavy machinery for a few days, as excitement causes them to black out.

Taser - energy weapon, inflicts (usually) non-lethal electrical shocks. Effective range 0 meters / requires physical contact.

Tangler - chemical weapon, non lethal. Packaged as a grenade, when it explodes, stretchy sticky strands are spread in a 7.5 meter radius. Requires an Anti-tangler spray agent to counter the adhesive strands.

Slug throwers - available in multiple forms. Usually used with subsonic ammo in a shipboard or station environment. Some offer less than lethal projectiles.

Yup! Gotta have weapons if you're pirates. Can't use the glowing energy blade as it's copyright infringement.

No uniforms yet.

Who would wear the uniforms?

Police - on land or sea.

Patrol - the Coast Guard of space, rendering assistance and doing their part to block contraband from getting planetside and on the stations.

UNSpacy - the United Nations Space Agency, in charge of colonization and securing the trade lanes, and backing up the patrol.

Corporation hauler - Someone has to bring in the raw materials and ship out the finished goods. And if you're in uniform, you look professional. Even if it's the plain dark navy jumpsuits with the utility belts.

The Non-Conformists - Rejecting what everyone else is wearing for the plain gray pant suit and the bowl hair cut. We're not conforming to what everyone else is doing!

Pirates - Uniforms? We don't need no' uniforms! Just the low slung blaster. And the hat. And the sash. Beard's nice. But no uniforms, savvy?
