A cryptic, cross-wordy type clue.
A Thespian following the first half of a short journey, and Ray, make an attractive device.

Hint No 1
Malacandra is thinking the right way - this is a bit of sci-fi kit (which doesn't exist today) and features in the likes of Star Trek etc.

in the spirit of cryptic clues here is a feeble attempt....

the end of a broom tied to a periscope plus a filter becomes a deadly SCi FI item

<nods> As demonstrated by HMS Storm after her last patrol.

The tradition persists in Royal Navy submarines (I believe HMS Conqueror was the last).

<grins> No, I've not figured it out yet. Merely keeping some site traffic going - there ain't much lately.
That, and I like submarines - HMS Storm is one of my favourites!
