(Redirected from Ribbon device)
A weapon used by Goa'uld, also known as a "ribbon device." The device is a useful means of interrogation and can inflict great pain. It is capable of emitting a powerful blast of energy to send a foe hurtling across the room. It is also capable of directing a much less intense, yet very deadly, ribbon of energy -- usually directed to the victim's forehead. Extended exposure is lethal.
The device works largely through the user's thought or emotion, theoretically allowing the user to communicate a message to his or her victim, if held in an extended "grip" of less intense energy.
