One thing I think should inform the choice is the question of whether the TSN are trained towards incapacitating or killing in combat.

That’s a good question. I think we’d be looking for incapacitation primarily, since we also prefer surrenders over destroyed ships (personal preferences aside).

Two other ideas I got (from Black Mirror S03 E05) are drones and a holo-map. Sending a drone or a robot to scout the area and then showing the scanned area on a holo-map is something that’s definitely useful.

Another thing we need to think about is Zero G combat. And I’m immediately reminded of the book Ender’s Game.
