This "weapon" doesn't cause damage to a ship, but veteran spacers fear it just the same. An Energy Net leeches energy from the solar sails that power most systems, leaving the targeted ship a sitting duck vulnerable to subsequent attack. A captain expecting to face smaller more manoeuvrable ships will wisely load a couple of these launchers.
Pros: Slows ship movement and rate of weapons fire, never ricochets.
Cons: No damage, low velocity, short range, long reload time.
- Contrary to popular belief, the Energy Net is capable of dealing damage, although only to stone and dragons.
