After further consideration of the matter, I believe energy weapons to be superior to projectile ones. They are not affected necessarily by greater mass and can disintegrate it, a feat no projectile can perform against a denser alloy than its own. The problem of storage is also eliminated as energy cells require less space than physical ammunition. Greater development of manīs mind is also reflected in the invention of insubstantial arms.
I fought on the battlefield. I retired to embrace a life of discovery and profit. I carve my own path in life and am better for it.
