Re: Why don't phasers shoot straight?

The only problem I have with phasers, as I see them used, is that the beams take too long to reach their target. You can actually see the beams moving. This shouldn't happen; it should be near-instantaneous. The only time we see THAT happening is in "Future's End", and even that was a 29th-century model.
We also rarely (if ever ) see a phaser being 'swept' as a weapon based on a beam of light could be, to take in a much larger target area.
