Superb as ever, Mr Turner!

One question, though: what is that vicious green death the pirate is dealing?
Disruptors? (What is a pirate doing using these in Romulan space?)
Plasma Carronades? (Please no!!!)
or simply vicious-looking Phasers?

Well, I intended them to be disruptors, but I didn't even think of the fact that I've depicted it fighting Romulans. D'oh!

I guess there are some rationaliztions you could come up with. Maybe it's a Romulan convoy going into Klingon space for some reason. Delivering payment for KR's or somesuch? Or maybe it's bolting plasma torpedoes. Can you do that in FedCom?

Maybe its a Orion that choose to buy a couple of disruptors from it's Kingon counter part so he could fire the for the three rounds it take a Romulan to rearm the plasma........

Why not distruptors? Wouldn't an Orion like to have a weapon that would be effective against what he's usually facing?

IIRC, most Orions outfit their ships with the weapons of the area they are operating in, since they're readily available. And that way salvage (or honestly paying for them) can easily replace any that are damaged in combat.

But then again, that's most, not all.

Not that it matters in FedCom but in SFB G15.441 Stats that Basiclly 70% of a Cartel's Ship will be armed with Weapons of thier Home Race's Territory, 20% from the Home Cartel's Territory, and 10% will be from any weapon available.

Whats this all mean just assume the Ship shown is from the Pharoah Cartel which operates in Klingon, Federation, and Romulan Space.
