Protoplaser

NotesImages
Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Protoplaser1

A medical device in use with Starfleet in the early 2160s. A protoplaser could be used to stop internal bleeding. One was aboard the USS Franklin when it was lost during this time period. After the ship's discovery in 2266, Doctor McCoy would successfully use it to treat Spock.2 T'Prynn kept a protoplaser in her office, which she used to heal small cuts in her hand in 2265.3

Protoplasers were still in use in the 2360s; in a delusion experienced by Will Riker on Tilonus IV, Doctor Crusher requested an anabolic protoplaser be used to treat a crewmember who had been injured when a plasma torch exploded.1
