Call it unintented side effect. The streams of sped up compressed Minosky
particles can best be described as an open ended beam saber, since there is
no cap on the end of the wing of light. And at that speed and particle
density, it is in a super heated fluid state. Add this all up, the wing of
light on V2 is kind of different beam saber. It's a beam saber made up
completely of superheated Minosky particle in fluid state. (The primary aim
of Minosky Drive is just to throw compress Minosky particles out as
propellent, at near light speed).
