Oh yeah, it's mostly during Turnabout where you're trying to stop the ship from self-destruction and you get about 8~ of them spawning around you in a circle in the hallway(presumably dropping from the hatches in the ceiling - actually had one get stuck up there). You've only got maybe 2 seconds to react before they all leap at you and leave ya twiddling your thumbs. If you're 'unlucky', you'll get a second one jumping on right after the first one explodes, repeating the cycle of helplessness.



As for their weapons, I believe they're a type of plasma-disruptor.. although I really want to get my hands on those crescent-shaped cannons.
