Re: possible reason we never seen the phaser rifle after w.n.m.h.g.b.

Roddenberry found out that lasers would not do what he needed them to do in various plots, so he switched to the fictional phasers. From his POV there never were any laser weapons on the Enterprise. The hand guns we see in WNMHGB and other episodes are just primitive phasers, even though they're the same prop as the Cage lasers.
