Head towards them, broadcasting a message to let them know it's me and not a target!

What sort of range is that flamethrower?

The plasma thrower fires a stream of helium at a temperature of around 9000 degrees C. This rapidly cools and disperses, though.

Code:

Plasma Thrower Ready Reckoner (full output):

Range  |  Approx. Temp (in deg. C)
-------------------------
50m    |  7000
100m   |  5000
200m   |  3500
300m   |  2500
400m   |  1500
500m   |  750


The helium is blasted out with a velocity of 200 m/s and would be tricky to hit things at long range if it wasn't for the dispersion of the helium. Actual heat transferred to the target depends on the dispersion of the helium and the size and angle of the target.
A sustained blast of helium pseudo-plasma would also exert a strong kinetic force on an object in freefall.
Remember - this is primarily a cutting tool, not a weapon, so aiming involves firing it and then ajusting the glowing stream of gas so that it hits the target. Actual cutting usually doesn't involve the full output, BTW.

As you approach the team at the R20 airlock you can see the Crab suddenly veer to one side, bounce off a turret and drift into space. It appears to be disabled. The engineer who the crab was chasing makes it to the security team and appears to be having a conversation with Max about his "lightning" gun.

One of the engineers who was crouched over the airlock door stands up and they all start spreading out as if they're going to hide behind turrets when one of them points up into space.
See the group thread at this point.
