A Pulse cannon, was a highly charged disruptor-style beam that was outfited in Coalition Revenge-class during the 24th century. (Star Trek: Pioneer (STP))

The weapon was developed in collaboration between the So'jan military command and the Romulan defector Commander Telek L'mar. After which the criminal known as Tyson Calok assisted in enhancing the beam, allowing the pulse cannon to serverly damage Federation vessels, such as when it was used against the USS Apollo and USS Saladin. ("Prime Target", "Fall of the Apollo", "Monks of Or'pec")

The damaged that this weapon can do to a Starfleet vessel was speculative at best until a Federation expeditionary force engaged a massive fleet of Revenge-class battleships over the planet of Minark. ("Torment and Woe")

This article is about the weapon in general. You may be looking for MZ-8 Mobile Pulse Cannon.
IG-88's pulse cannon.

A pulse cannon was a weapon designed to rapidly fire concentrated bursts of plasma, generally used to take out groups of fast-moving targets. They were generally not used by military forces due to their destructive nature. The pulse cannon shot out small orbs of blue or purple light that inflicted much pain on its victim.

IG-88, a droid bounty hunter, carried a modified version of this weapon, as did Dash Rendar. The Plasma cannons used by the Zann Consortium were sometimes referred to as a pulse cannon.

By 16 ABY, large versions of these weapons were mounted on the New Republic's Nebula-class Star Destroyers.[1]
