A couple of ideas I'm considering doing...

Postby pengbuzz » Sun Dec 27, 2015 7:26 am

Well, a while back, i designed out the phasers to be used for personnel in my series "Star Trek: Alpha Centauri":

Thinking about making at least a hand phaser prop. Will be developing this as I go....

Pardon my obtuseness, but when exactly did phasers need to come with warp fields?

Not at all, Monogrim: you have a valid question. The phasers the Federation had during the time of the U'vath attack were useless against them (both hand and ship-mounted). In the story, Starfleet had been experimenting with a new type of phaser where the beam is accelerated through a warp-field. This makes the phasers usable during warp flight, increases their power, and as they discovered in the story, made them the only energy weapon that could affect the U'vath.

Thanks! I think it came out better than the rifle; we'll see how revisions go when I get a spare moment.

Thanks for the info Pegnbuzz! It's nice to have a wee bit of technobabble to explain their design. :D

I'm cool with that.

You're welcome. :) It's an idea I toyed with for some time, but found justification for in the story that I've been working on for over a year and a half now.
