Sometimes it is not wise to carry a weapon. Noble dignitaries can’t very well bring a sword to negotiate with a rival family, an assassin cannot walk into a public event with daggers on his belt and a priest with a dangerous past cannot risk his position in the church by carrying a dangerous weapon. However, that doesn’t mean that carrying a weapon is not necessary. The following is a list of seemingly mundane items that contain a deadly, hidden blade.

The term Sensors refers to a broad range of devices on a space ship that are used to observe the environment outside the spacecraft. Some sensor systems are passive, absorbing and processing information. Other systems are active: provoking objects in space to gain information.

More DynaMaxes were destroyed or totalled by transmission failures than anything else. The car remains an ugly and ambitious reminder of a day gone by
