Also, referring to something you said earlier in the thread, Timo, there's never been an instance I can think of where phasers fire FTL. In fact, they all seem to be slower than light, since in nearly all cases, there is a noticeable travel time in the beam (i.e. not visually instantaneous), which would explain why it is in fact possible for ships and people to dodge phaser attacks.
Phasers have been fired at warp ever since TOS, although more often than not they generally aren't.

But here's a whole thread about the subject.
