Tesla Arc Projector
Imagine a bug zapper. Now, imagine a bug zapper that you can mount on your ship and will fry everything within 500 meters. You are now imagining the Tesla Arc Projector - the electrical equivalent of a flamethrower. While a flamethrower would be useless in a vacuum, the Tesla Projector is quite good at zapping enemies directly through the walls of their cockpit. Even with a miss, you can fry their computer. Note: Electrical current will quite happily leap from foe to friend if you're bored enough to fire while they're in the way.
