Electrify the Rail
Use of substantial electrical charge applied to outer hull to repel potential boarders. (Read

|"Here's an odd use of the same concept in clothing:|
(From No Contact Jacket electrified for defense)
'The No-Contact Jacket is a wearable defensive jacket created to aid women in their struggle for protection from violence. When activated
by the wearer, 80,000 volts of low amperage electric current pulses just below the surface shell of the entire jacket. This exo-electric
armor prevents any person from unauthorized contact with the wearer's body. If an assailant were to grab hold of the wearer the high
voltage exterior would interrupt their neurological impulses which control voluntary muscle movement. The neuromuscular
system would be overwhelmed causing disorientation and loss of balance to occur and of course pain. The pain experienced is non-lethal
but is enough to effectively and immediately deter contact with the wearer and provide a critical life saving oppurtunity for escape.'"
