Babylon 5 PPG
Babylon 5 PPG: From the television series Babylon 5 (and spin-off productions), this was the standard-issue sidearm for Earth Alliance forces. A medium-frame handgun, the PPG fired a "phased plasma" charge capable of causing intense damage to flesh and light materials, but incapable of penetrating solid metal (such as used in a hull) in standard power levels. It was powered by replaceable energy capacitors. The standard overall size of this design is 6.5".
