I got the idea for this after watching some sci fi program on TV. The characters of the show were all firing laser things on their ship, this may work on a set, but in real life? One miss and the sound of hitting the wall is shortly followed by several million degrees of white hot death, or for you stupid heads out there-KABLOOIE!!!!!. That or it punches a hole in the wall to space and you get sucked into the FINAL frontier, terminal even. So I figured you would need weapons of a more close up nature such as a three metre long sword with spikes and chains and painful-stuff on it. AND you would need some protection, you ever watched star trek and seen them go out to face aliens that may wish to tear out their intestines for brunch wearing nothing but those thin uniforms? Personally I would prefer to have so much armour that I could only stand because of the low gravity. Thus it gave rise to the future of spacecraft protection- the star knight. Trained in all forms of close combat, mainly the one with the big choppa, he is the answer to any 6 eyed alien trying to eat you whole. Ah, yes, and he has a torch on his helmet, for those millions of times the 'power is down'
