    "My character is annoyed with you."

    "Gun Caddy... hit him with the stun baton... medium style."

    Annihilation is unnecessary.

    Having a violent chat with him however would work.


    You: I grab ASSGUY by the throat.
    Him: What?!
    DM: Er, okay, make a roll.
    You: *Rolls, succeeds*
    DM: You grab him.
    You: "What the hell do you think you were doing?!"
    Him: Is this in character?
    You: Yes


    End it with a nice threat stating that if he doesn't want to be jettisoned out into space he'll be more considerate in the future.

    So... next time he started being a dick to an important diplomat i backstabbed him with a hypo full of sedative and we all dragged him off discretly

    (He failed a bunch of checks so he was out for hours. He woke up in our cargobay to find himself without pants and missing his robotic eye.)

    You forgot the best part! What Georgina did to him after you stole his pants.

    She used a soldering iron to burn the following message onto his butt (although note that removing scars was fairly easy in the setting): "Thanks for the great time! Love Bill & all the guys at the Pink Club <3"

    ...ahem. Anyway yeah some good advice so far. I've been really lucky with most of my players but I reckon your best bet is taking the bull by the horns and being direct. Passively trying to deal with it likely won't resonate very much with a true asshole.
