The TR-116 and its accompanying targeting sensor were designed by Production Illustrator [[John Eaves]] based on the [[Breen]] phaser rifle first seen in {{e|Indiscretion}}.

"''We used one of the Breen rifles as the basic body and detailed and added all the extras to convert the piece into a new and deadlier weapon, the prototype TR-116 rifle.''" Eaves also believed the weapon to be chambered for .30 caliber rounds.

The TR-116 rifle also appears as a "rare ground weapon" with a limit of one per character in the video game ''[[Star Trek Online]]''. Players who pre-ordered the game through either Target or GAME received the weapon for free. When the game's crafting system was overhauled, the TR-116 B-variant was added as a craftable weapon, thus making the rifle available for all players.
