Alternatively, one could look at it that a railgun just sends a single
chunk of mass into a ship, whereas a beam weapon may be 'raking' along
the ship, spreading out it's potential damage, and thus the reroll idea.

Not that I'm against railguns having or not having rerolls. Just thought
I'd toss that out there since you kinda asked.	;-)
