A Spinal Mount — also called a spinal weapon or spinal mount weapon — is a fixed-mount, major starship weapons system which provides for attacks of the greatest possible power.

Description / Specifications[edit]

A number of different kinds of weapons may be built into a spinal mount.

These include:

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Because a starship's entire structure is built around a spinal mount, hence the name, no starship may have more than one spinal mount.

There is one exception: a so-called "Janus" mount consists of two half-length spinal weapons installed in a single spinal tunnel, one facing fore, one to aft.
