Im making this thread becuase I think this could be a long topic, and I dont want to carry on in the PotD comments section.

Any way, after watching back that particular scene in Nemesis in which the Enterprise fires at zero elevation, it is clear that more than one phaser is being fired from the same strip and at the same time in rapid succesion.

I don't think it's really a problem. Those ships would, at some point, be able to multi-target. It makes sense actually. Unless you're taking down shields (ie, focusing on one point) then striking multiple ship targets is logical. I see no problem here.

I dont have a problem with it, but in the PotD section:

ZixenHas anyone ever seen a Fed vessel fire two phasers at once? I think it's just sad that Beth soft has no respect for established Trek cannon. *sigh*

I think its a topic that could go on, so I made the thread instead of carrying on in the PotD comment section. I actually like the fact ships can fire more than one phaser, it makes sense.

I might get proof of this.. (i'll take a few screen captures form my DS9 DVDs and nemesis)... I agree with most when saying mulitple targeting phasers would be in existence as there will be the need for them in certain circumstances such as kicking Romulan ass

Ah yes, thank you guys.

*Note to Zixen* As you can see above the ships have fired more than one phaser at once...
