The Q Bomb is a planet cracking weapon that can destroy a planet on contact.
There has been controversy on Earth over the use of the Q Bomb: Religious fanatics say that the Federation shouldn't decide what planet lives and dies; politicians don't bother; and military officials think that since the Bugs don't use a Q Bomb, why shouldn't they?
- The novel equivalent is the Nova Bomb, and the Federation does not refrain from using it, unless it has something else in mind.
- After doing much research into the Q-Bomb from Starship Troopers 3: Marauder, some fans believe it's a quantum accelerated high explosive bomb.
