Bucky Cable Anchor created by Joseph Thompson Edit
A 'Bucky cable' is an intelligent harpoon, which tracks its targets by the instructions of the computer on board of the firing ship. It is primarily used to recover any kind of salvage or to haul damaged ships. It is also used for many other applications, and is renowned for its high tensile strength and endurance. It is used in orbital elevators because of its strength and is also used in spaceships to as internal wiring because of its conductivity.The Bucky cables ,use grapplers or magnetic clamps to lock onto other star ships,space debris and can be used as a tactical weapon,by targetting the enemy ship and firing the Grappling Harpoon into the other vessels vital areas and either drawing in the bucky cable,back into the cable line reel or manuevering the ship away to pull at the enemy star ship.. Although only one of the two grappler claws latched onto the shuttlepod, it proved sufficient enough to reel the craft back to the ship.again used the grappler to retrieve its own shuttlepod after it had been stolen.

The Grappling Hook Pistol is an essential item for any aspiring Badass Normal, Cape, or secret agent. This handy bit of Applied Phlebotinum can deploy a grappling hook with laser-guided precision to a secure holding point at the top of any tall building, allowing its user to climb with ease. Particularly spiffy examples are equipped with motors, and can function as field-expedient elevators as their users hold on for dear life. It can also be used to implement the Building Swing, though its primary function is usually just for climbing.
In settings that pre-date firearms the alternative is the grappling arrow used by bow wielding protagonists. While it can be an arrow with a grappling hook more often it's just a standard arrow with a rope tied to it. TheGrappling Hook Pistolis generally a fairly bulky item for a handheld pistol, though unreasonably small for the length of line and hook firing charge that it contains. Its limited utility makes it a special-purpose item that the hero is unlikely to carry... but it generally conveniently appears fromwhen it is needed.Larger versions are designed for star ship harpooners to use for a variety of uses.The Grappling Hook Launcher,is primary type used-often some sort of launching system,such as Bucky Cable Anchor or Bucky Cable Catapult.
The modern whaling harpoon consists of a deck-mounted launcher (mostly a cannon) and a projectile which is a large harpoon connected to a thick rope. The spearhead is shaped in a manner which allows it to penetrate the thick layers of whale blubber and stick in the flesh. It has sharp spikes to prevent the harpoon from sliding out. Thus, by pulling the rope with a motor, the whalers can drag the whale back to their ship.
A recent development in harpoon technology is the hand-heldspeargun. Divers use the speargun for defense against dangerous marine animals. They are also used for spearing fish. Spearguns may be powered by pressurized gas or with mechanical means like springs or elastic bands.Modern star ship technology,uses some sort magneticrail gun technology.
'Rocket Anchors : either side of the bow are rocket-powered anchors at the ends of strong chains, which the can use to anchor itself to asteroids and, if necessary, provide a gravity-assisted slingshot. They can also be used to deflect enemy ships from collision.Rocket Anchors were crude missle catapults with tow cables attatched to a secure line and ring anchor,welded or hooked into the star ship,somewhere below or near the Rocket Anchor Harpoon Gun.Many star ships ,used them additional docking lines,similar to old style sea ship anchors.They were also used which tracks its targets by the instructions of the computer on board of the firing ship. It is primarily used to recover any kind of salvage or to haul damaged ships or secure docking ports,while the star ship manuevering into a cargo hold , external docking port,space elivator
Agrappling hookis ahookattached to arope, designed to be thrown or projected a distance, where its hooks will engage with the target. Grappling hooks were originally used innaval warfareto catch theriggingof an enemy ship so that it could be drawn in and boarded. Later, grappling hooks were also used in rescue work or to assist in scaling walls.

An Anchor shapped Crappling Bucky Cable Launcher,used tow in outside interstellar debris,other star ships or wreckage or debris,such small asteroids.
The grappler was a metal shaft with claws on the end that could be launched by a starship to grapple objects in space. The grapplers utilized a magnetic lock device to attach to objects.Grapplers,were often fired from mono rail or rail gun rocket.Later on repulsor mono rail guns were used.These positioned on many star ships,on a harpoon gun like turret,complete a transparisteel port,for harpooner to see where he firing,without having 100% rely upon the ship's Tactical Computer Fight Systems
The class starships of the Starfleet possessed two grapplers. However, their use was eventually superseded by the development of the superiortractor beam.
