Few pistols are deadlier than the plasma pistol, and those willing to take the risk of using one possess a weapon capable of taking down almost any foe at close range. Plasma pistols are a favourite weapon of Imperial officers, who view it as a status symbol to be entrusted with such a valuable and venerated weapon. It can only hold smaller hydrogen flasks (or sometimes only a single flask) and thus can only fire a handful of shots. They are dangerous to use on board a vessel, as a single shot can penetrate several bulkheads.
