er.. do you mean screens here? it might be interesting to have a look at
the 'turbolaser commentries' website (I've forgotten the URL, but I
think links to it - same author) - where the auther has
analysed the ion cannon sequence from SW Episode 5, and noticed that it
does appear to interact with an invisible screen before striking the
star destroyer hull - so icon cannon _may_ be affected by screens, in
contadiction to what many of the various SW tech books say.

Well, I have some prototype stats for a 'matter transmitter' based

launcher type weapon, - but it still needs a bit of work - it could do
other things as well.
