For the laser pistols used in Galactica 1980, see: Laser pistol (1980).
A laser pistol as used by the Colonial warriors.


The laser pistol is the standard energy-based sidearm of Colonial warriors.

Colonial military laser pistols contain readouts that can indicate whether or not they has been recently fired (TOS: "Murder on the Rising Star").

The energy signature in each weapon is unique, allowing tests to be conducted to prove if a particular pistol was used in a given instance (Murder on the Rising Star).

Notes

  • At the beginning of the series, the laser volley emitted from the pistol is invisible to the eye, with the exception of the accompanying flash from the muzzle. Later during the series run, particularly in "Take the Celestra" and "The Man with Nine Lives," the laser blasts become red bolts due to the fact that Universal Hartland became the SFX factory for the Original Series[1].
