Canon Facts Backstage
The isokinetic cannon is a powerful weapons system
developed by a species native to the Delta Quadrant. Designed to penetrate
heavy shielding and inflict serious damage with a single shot, the isokinetic
cannon was purchased by the USS Voyager in exchange for 125 isolinear computer
chips. The cannon was installed on board Voyager for a test firing; despite
a successful test, a subsequent misunderstanding occurred in which the
manufacturer of the device was killed before it could be integrated into
Voyagers tactical systems.
Despite this tragedy, Voyager retained the cannon
and has since managed to fully intergrate it with the shielding and targeting
systems. The cannon presently remains in use on board the ship.
