Re: Abandoned and damaged starships

Given that the ships were expecting phasers at 1/100th power for the wargames it's not at all surprising that the M-5s full power shots could have wiped out the entire crew of the Excalibur, which clearly wasn't running with shields full up. I mean, in Day of the Dove the Enterprise obliterates an unshielded Klingon Battlescruiser with one shot.
