This time out, I've picked my favorite sci-fi sidearms, taking into account the design of the weapon, how effective it appeared on the show, and, well, simply just how "cool" I think it is. With that, let's begin at...
NUMBER FIVE: Colonial LaserBattlestar Galactica
NUMBER FOUR: Sentry LaserThe Black Hole
NUMBER THREE: Han Solo's BlasterStar Wars
NUMBER TWO: Sandman DS GunLogan's Run
NUMBER ONE: Moonbase Alpha LaserSpace: 1999
The only weapon that I wish I had been able to fit in was the Star Trek Type II phaser pistol, but ultimately, it didn't quite make the cut. Feel free to berate me for that decision - or any of my choices - in the comments.
