"The BioRelay is a thin laser beam weapon mounted in the framework of Striker and Manta vessels. The BioRelay is a series of cellular storage capacitors that discharge linearly to provide a steady power curve for the beam. As such, the heat generated from the laser body is minimal, which keeps the size down for the Manta and Striker, and yet packs a punch compared to packeted weapons such as the Federation blasters."
The BioRelay Laser is powerful beam gun that is mounted on the Manta, Striker, and Zephyr. It causes devastating damage to most ships and also comes in a turreted form. This weapon is a valuable addition to any arsenal, but its primary drawback is the annoying beeping sound it makes when it fires.
