The machine attacked with a beam weapon that Commodore Decker of the ''Constellation'' described as "pure antiproton", although its visible effects were inconsistent with a beam composed entirely of negatively charged [[antimatter]] particles. Shots from this beam defeated the shields of the ''Enterprise'' with just a few shots, but it did not instantly annihilate the ship even after the shields failed. This same beam was apparently cable of blasting large chunks out of planets.

The machine had a tractor beam which was capable of overcoming the propulsion systems of the ''Enterprise'' (although the ''Enterprise'' had sustained some damage by that time). The primary purpose of the tractor beam was presumably to bring pieces blasted out of planets into the machine's "maw" for consumption.
