This weapon actually forms the keel of the Terran Confederation-class dreadnought; it is too large to be mounted on any other ship in the Confederation Navy. The phase-transit cannon bypasses shields and is capable of destroying any ship with a single shot. It is a refinement of a similar weapon found in the wreckage of the Sivar-Class Dreadnought, the Kilrathi dreadnought that single-handedly destroyed the Goddard colony in 2654. Presumably the Kilrathi have more Sivar-class dreadnoughts, but none have been spotted since that first appearance.

Continual problems with the phase-transit cannon led to its retirement in late 2665.
