I have been looking at starship weapons and found the Point-Defense laser cannons. I know what laser cannons are but what does it mean by "Point-Defense"?
Point defense means that the weapons target incoming missiles and fighter craft. Thus, they are only used in defense of the ship. The real world naval equivalent is the Close-in weapon system. -LtNOWIS 02:39, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
