Gunnery Officer's Report

The photon cannon came into service recently and falls into the category of sophisticated arms. Although it depletes blaster power quickly, the damage potential is high enough that a single shot can down your ship if you're not careful. With long-range and high velocity, the effectiveness of the photon is second only to the reaper cannon.
