Plasma Slug is an Experimental Effect which can be applied to Plasma Accelerators and Railguns during Engineering. It allows plasma slug ammo to be generated for the applicable weapons directly from ship fuel, at the cost of 10% reduced damage output per shot.

As fuel can be freely scooped from stars, this upgrade effectively eliminates the ammunition restock costs for the Plasma Accelerator and Railgun. Ships with small fuel reserves should use caution as they could become stranded.
