Stormfire. Stormfire is essentially a smaller, faster version of a mass driver (i.e., it shoots projectiles, not energy). Each individual shot does significantly less damage than any other weapon, but it adds up quickly! Although it has significantly less range than energy-based weapons, it has an interesting side effect. It marks its target — you can see the target sparkle when you are closer than 1500 klicks. This makes it very effective against slippery targets such as cloaked ships.
