Star Trek: The Next Generation (TV) (1987), Romulan Disruptor Rifle
replica movie prop
This prop rifle is one of the most frequently used guns in Star Trek; the weapon is definitely most prominent as the Romulan rifle, although it appeared in this role in just one episode, "Unification".. More than one copy exists of the weapon. It canbe seen for the first time in TNG: "The High Ground" where it was carried by the Ansata terrorists. The prop, with the same black or dark gray color scheme, is also used in TNG: "The High Ground", "Ensign Ro", "Rascals", "Starship Mine", "Gambit, part I", VOY: "The 37's" and "Dragon's Teeth". This variant of the rifle with a silver-gray coating was created relatively early, for TNG: "Captain's Holiday". It appeared once more in DS9: "The Passenger". Finally, there is a brown version of the weapon in DS9: "Armageddon Game", VOY: "Ex Post Facto", "Tattoo" and possibly in "Unity".
It is possible that the rifle as it appeared in Trek is based on a Visitor Shock Trooper pistol from "V" that has the same basic rectangular shape.
