I think Axton meant what Chekov attempted to use against his interrogators aboard the CVN 65 Enterprise, and what Kirk did use on the closet door's lock in the hospital's operating room, when McCoy was attempting to save Chekov. But, those weren't phasers, they were the Klingon disruptor analog to the Feds' Phaser Is.

Phasers have fired pulses in STIII and STVI. But, in TWOK, they fired beams. It may have been the pulses were just shorter-duration beams.

And, if the implications of that bother you, the time to do something about it is before you send him out."

Funny, I actually have a copy of that, I've no idea where I put it though :mrgreen:
It's no use debating a moron; they drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

Your claim of using a scientific equation is laughable when all you have done is butcher science to the point it makes 'The Core' look like a fucking documentary. Just because you have the attention span of a fruit fly doesn't mean the rest of us are so encumbered.

There was no phaser fire at all in TVH.


There wasn't phaser combat in that film, but yes, there was one shot -- when Kirk shut a doctor in a closet (or whatever it was) and fired a phaser at the lock to seal him in there. It was a pulse shot rather than a beam.
Maximum effort!

I'd forgotten that. I thought there was just the bit where Chekov tries and fails to use one on his interrogators.


eta: Huh turns out you're right. here. Not so much a pulse/bolt as a very short firing on a beam. And it's a klingon weapon....

Son of a... conceded, that is a short beam. My bad.
