BOOM! hell, who needs a small one when you can make a giant one, on earth? just fire those babies at the moon. who needs that thing anyway?

as for the plasma torpedo, being contained in a magnetic field... it sounds good and all, but it's impractical. weapons are disposable devices. you shoot. it hits. boom. you shoot you miss. sucks. but you can't risk missing something that costs a crap load of money to create. accuracy would have to be 100%, ability of deflection by the target would have to be none, to make such an expensive weapon practical.
"Scalar EM is the brainchild of Lt. Col. (retired) Thomas E. Bearden, a systems analyst and wargames specialist who has been advocating a view of electromagnetics which is based on the notion of a vast, unseen background of scalar energies (as opposed to vector energies) which underlie all physical reality.
If Bearden is correct in his Scalar EM theory, then we can build devices which would enable us to alter gravity, time, inertia, and the apparent mass of an object. This of course has ENORMOUS implications for military applications, space-vehicle drives, time-travel, teleportation, paranormal phenomena, and just about every other area one can think of
Remember, the power for these weapons comes from the time domain, longitudinal EM waves in the vacuum of empty space, and the power is tremendous and mind-boggling. Being able to blast away at any target from a distant control booth is something that has never happened before. This is incredible power to be in control of and it divides the history of weaponry into "before" and "after." And the destructive power of these weapons is delivered instantaneously to the target from the local vacuum at the place of the target.
These interferometers are called "Tesla Howitzers." They can deliver a giant blast of energy to the distant target site, true "action-at-a-distance".
The howitzer can use a lesser exothermic power setting and simply destroy all electronics in the target area. Thus they can render our nuclear missiles inoperable as they sit in their silos by "frying" the electronic circuits that guide them. They can bring down any airplane, anywhere in the world, at any time. Any person anywhere, if their exact position is known, can be assassinated without a shot being fired.
By using both of these heat (exothermic) and cold (endothermic) modes together the weather can be altered anywhere. Warm the air over here, cool it down over there, put a curl in the jet stream, dissipate clouds, create clouds, whip up a tornado. Bearden speaks about using the endothermic howitzer mode as a weapon of war:
"Cold explosions can be used to freeze tanks, personnel, and equipment. The equipment and tanks thaw out. The personnel thaw out too, but they are dead when they do."
Any person anywhere, if their exact position is known, can be assassinated without a shot being fired.
Additionally (using several systems together to maximize efficiency) waste material from the ship that would need to be 'dumped' anyway could be used as propellent/ammunition. A waste system could in theory be designed to process waste (both human and ship waste) into 'pellets' of propellent/ammunition, to be expelled through the engine/weapon.
