I think the phasers in next gen improved with age. I disliked the 'dusbust' version but immediately appreciated the replacement and it's DS9 variation. I suppose my question is: did anybody like the 'dustbuster' Phaser?
Yeah, they were a little bulky; but then they kinda went to the other end of the scale spectrum with those Cricket Phasers. They seem too small for use.TNG has to be the Cobra Phaser. But in reality, Dolphin all the way!
