Firepower rating: High (Versus Light Creatures) Low (Versus Dark Creatures)
The Dark Beam is a weapon derived of pure dark energy originating from Dark Planet Aether. It is believed that during the early days of the war between the Luminoth and the Ing, the Luminoth tried to reverse enginner the Ing's own dark matter against them. Their efforts produced the Dark Beam. Unfortunatly, the Dark Beam did very little if any damage to it's proposed targets. It was later abandoned in favor of creation of a Light Beam. Further study of this weapon appears to show that the beam focuses dark energy into a cold, viscous plasma.
