Star Trek Weapons - The Search for Spock - Type 2 Hand Phaser Final Design (2285)

MorBius
Under authority of Starfleet’s Tactical Division, Personal phasers come in three types: The small, concealable phaser type-1 (hand phaser), the larger more powerful phaser type 2, and the still larger phaser type 3, also known as the phaser rifle, all of which operate by firing a nadion particle beam formed by passing plasma through a phase emitter, with the intensity and field of the beam producing a wide variety of effects. With the continued advancements in phaser technology, Starfleet Tactical in November 2283 contracted with Sestra Weapons Group, developer of the original Type 2 Phaser (2266) to develop a new hand phaser system, following the issue of Ataiskes Phaser Corporation’s Type 2 - Model 4 Hand Phaser to Starfleet personnel in 2281. By 2284, a Sestra prototype weapon was developed, and a year later, the final design was approved by Starfleet and issued to Starfleet personnel in 2285, once again consisting of the now familiar two piece Phaser 1b / 2b design of its Sestra predecessor and featuring the improved cooling and control system together with a new simpler “speed setting" system of beam force selection. This model depicts the final production design. *** Please Note: This model depicts the final design actually used in both “Star Trek 3: The Search for Spock” in 1984, and “Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home” in 1986. #Earth #Enterprise #firearm #gun #nadion #phaser #pistol #Roddenberry #Sci_fi #Scifi #Search_for_Spock #Sestra #Space #Space_travel #Spock #Star_Trek #Starfleet #Starfleet_Tactical #Startrek #The_Search_for_Spock #weapon
