G'day guys,

I don't mind this idea as the potential is limited, but if we could
the need for a list somehow. The cost might be a little low though?

 >EMP Mine [Paul Wellman] (Sam Penn's Website)

I'm not a fan of you hit you test all systems, unless there is some 
mechanic mimicking how hard it is to get to a threshold check (like 
Charles' idea).

 >Pulse Cannon [Paul Wellman] (Sam Penn's Website)

Bit long ranged I would've thought and again its got the hit everything

 >Scrambler Pulse [Noam Izenberg]
 >Effect: As EMP Missile. Can target Missiles and Fighters

Don't mind the intercept idea, but its also got the effect all systems

I'm with Oerjan on this one.

I'd drop the automatic threshold increase bit, but the first bit sounds 

 >Ion Pulse Weapon (IPW)
I like this idea, though I'd make it more expensive.... and once again
we could get away from the list I'd like it even more!

Just my 2 razoos worth
