Attached are scans of energy output from ranged weapons used by Triangularian forces. These weapons appeared to have little or no effect upon the Astran targets. The Astrans did not appear to have gear or equipment that would counter the effect of ranged energy weapons. The Astrans did not appear to employ ranged weapons themselves, instead relying solely on a slashing attack in close combat. Wounds on Triangularian forces appeared to be consistent with a claw. Whether the weapon used by Astrans is organic to the species or a prosthetic is undetermined.
Query: How does the energy output of the Trianularian weapons compare with Star Fleet issued phasers. What sort of device could counter the energy output of the Trianularian weapons in the manner observed.
