Peter. Your momma wants to speak with you. Come on, Pete, take these fool things off.
The weapon used to threaten Yondu and against Ronan is called a "Hadron Enforcer." The name is supposedly derived from the Large Hadron Collider, a scientific tool that smashes particles together almost at lightspeed. The name is somewhat incongruous, as the weapon does not use near-light-speed particles for destruction, instead using an extremely explosive bullet/missile. However, it should be noted that the weapon was named by Rocket Raccoon himself, mere hours after he finished building it ("That's for if things get really hardcore..."). The technical inaccuracy of the name is more indicative of Rocket's limited knowledge than anything else.
The opening credits are played over Star-Lord retrieving the Orb on a distant world, while he listens to "Come and Get Your Love" on his Walkman.
