Unwikied and minimal information, this requires more information about the weapon itself and it's use by alien races - especially the Dominion. Enzo Aquarius 04:59, 27 Dec 2004 (CET)

There should be a real good explaination, as well, to explain why the Dominion would revert to a weapon type during the late-24th century that was used by humans 200 years earlier! --Gvsualan 01:30, 15 Mar 2005 (GMT)

A "real good" reason? Thats stupid. Does the Dominion need a "real good" explanation for why the Dominion use a propulsion system during the late-24th century, that was used by humans 200 years earlier? You use what works. "Keep It Simple Stupid". Its the same plasma gun, but souped up for the 24th century, just like warp drives are warp drives, they're just beefed up for the 24th century.Hossrex 01:25, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
Please don't insult other people's intelligence. It appears this issue has been settled almost two years ago, and Alan was more than likely speaking sarcastically.--Tim Thomason 01:29, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
Well gosh pop. I guess thats why people shouldn't use sarcasm on the internet. Oh, and I didn't realize that if something hasn't been added to a talking point for two years, it could no longer be discussed. On a final note, this is a wiki. Wiki's are based on reader contribution, and reader discussion. Stifling said discussion, or implying a person shouldn't state their opinion when they have a valid point to make is contrary to the goal of any wiki. (unsigned, User:Hossrex)
No problem, although I'd like to point out that I'm only trying to "stifle" your opinion that Gvsualan was stupid, which is a personal attack if not meant in jest. I was trying to explain my perception on his comments in case you misunderstood him. If you have anything more to add on the subject of plasma rifles, go right ahead. It's just that what you said about the plasma rifles being the same is what was agreed to two years ago, and what the article currently reflects.--Tim Thomason 07:41, 4 January 2007 (UTC)


The Jem'Hadar-picture used on this page is supposed to show a plasma rifle introduced in 2375, but the person is Ikat'ika from 2373. We need a clear picture of a Jem'Hadar-rifle from the last DS9-episodes. Kennelly 00:20, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Iron sights Edit

I've noticed that, like a fair few weapons in science fiction, e.g. the MA5 series assault rifle from Halo, phasers and plasma weapons seem to lack iron sights. Any thoughts on that? Daisy-023 (talk) 10:06, June 17, 2015 (UTC)
