Wouldn't that have been kinda useless as well, since there would be no way
to atttack? or can you shot through the beam shield if you were the one
who had it? I suppose the only way for that woud be to use phasing sytems
for your beam and the shield...kinda like the old machine guns they used in

Hmmm..perhaps that part of the shield used pretty tough metal...
