Variable Assault Deflector Array

The deflector array is modified to fire a large phased polaron beam. A forward facing weapon of considerable power. The power of this weapon is such that it has the potential to lower an enemy's shields in one shot for an equally powered ship. Destruction is possible when used against smaller vessels. The trade-off being the considerable amount of power needed. Thus the need for a third impulse power generator. When used, the power generator must be powered down for 60 seconds (minimum) or catastrophic damage to the deflector dish, EPS/power transfer conduits, and the auxiliary impulse generator is inevitable. It should be noted that excess damage to the auxiliary impulse generator, given its proximity to the warp core, can lead to destruction of the ship. AVDA should not be used in-flight as the risk of damage is high. The ship should be stationary as the deflector dish will be temporarily disabled.
