The Light Beam is a weapon derived of pure solar energy originating from the Luminoth. Though it was developed by the Luminoth, it appears to also have traces of Chozo design behind it's exterior. . It is believed that during the early days of the war between the Luminoth and the Ing, the Luminoth created this beam to counter the Ing's highly destructive affinity to dark energy. After the failed attempt at using the Dark Beam against the Ing, Luminoth scientists set off to create that antipode to their enemies. The creation would become the Light Beam. The beam absorbs light in the surrounding area and focuses it into a super heated array of light.
