The disruptor was a common Klingon weapon that disrupted the structure of living tissue or (at higher power levels) any solid matter. Klingon disruptors could be found in both shipboard and pistol configurations. The disruptors used by the Eminians used highly compressed sound waves to disrupt their targets.
