**Tue Sep 02, 2014 3:35 am**Here's a phaser power nips (bug/annoyance) .. and I'll limit this just to what is published for Constitution and Excellsior.

The Early Constitution starts with 6x lasers total 2000 terrawatts averaging 333 1/3 terrawatt per cannon

The Basic constitution switches to Type 6 phasers (6x cannons) total output 4000 terrawatts averaging 666 2/3 terrawatts per cannon

The Refit Constitution upgrades to Type 7 phasers triples the cannons to 18 with a total output of 6000 terrawatts ... or better known as 333 1/3 terrawatts per cannon?!?! In the movie they increased phaser power by channelling it through the main energizers, yet here it looks like they've found a great way to cut phaser power.

Then we create the Excelsior arm it with Type 8 phaser banks, cut the number down to 12, and now you have an output of 18,500 terrawatts, or 1541 2/3 terrawatts per cannon. Enterprise B same number and phaser type however output per cannons increases to 1708 1/3 terrwatt per cannon.

THEN 80 years later, an Excelsior class is upgraded to 30x Type 9 phaser banks, only the per cannon output is somehow drastically reduced again to 1333 1/3 terrawatts.

One can only conclude that every other phaser type in the chain is a complete failure to its previous. Phaser 6 new, Phaser 7 failure, Phaser 8 breakthrough, Phaser 9 a flop.
