Some useful variations on the classic ship graveyard and can make for a nice land mark to add to an otherwise dull section of a campaigns galaxy.
It also sparked the following adventure idea:
We are not alone
Having thought they were the only intelligent life in the universe the humans onboard the exploration vessel "Lost Horizon" were stunned at its discovery of the graveyard. Not one, but hundreds of relics from different species seem collected here. The scientific value of the graveyard is immense, to say nothing of the anthropological value.
Deciphering the origins of many of the ships and then trying to reach their homeworlds could form the basis of an entire campaign. Of course not all of these species get along, and more then a few may be offended their ancestors graves have been disturbed by these meddling monkeys.
A useful list, sure to make any gun bunny characters happy, and allow players to customize their capabiltities without needing to purchase new weapons. (Especially useful for shadowrun.)
(On a side note with #13: No real impact on damage should read no real damage on impact unless my understanding is completely off on how this round functions?)
A couple more sure to add fun to combat:
A thin outercasing surrounding an extremely viscious liquid that can becomes sticky upon exposre to air. While of little immediate problem individually (unless fired from a shotgun) on full auto these rounds can quickly render a target impaired, with portions of clothing sticking to itself, and effected weapons jamming.
Often used by law enforcement to slow down fleeing suspects they also have a surprising effective deterrent on animals and will readily obscure a vehicles windshield.
When fired from a machine gun these roudnds can also lay down an effective temporary barrier for crowd control.
(Note those issued such rounds often are provided with a small can if chemical dissolvant to allow for easier apprehension of the target and clean up of accidents.
A useful round for crowd control and repelling wild animals, the stench round contains a chemical substance (such as beutraic acid) that upon exposure to air vaporises into a small cloud of toxic stench.
Originally designed as a slug for shitguns, a submachine gun or assault rifle can also create a small to medium sized cloud of miasma with a quick burst.

While similar to tear gas in composition, the main effect of these rounds is revulsion, and often neasuea/vomiting, making them more PR friendly due to lower incidents of accidental death, and minimal collateral damage.
