FTL weapons don't look good to the audience by virtue of moving faster than the human eye can track.
We have a WINNER!!! This is the real reason the beams look the way they do.
I never understood this.

Look at Star Trek 6, then look at Nemesis, then look at most Enterprise phaser fights.

Almost all of the phaser scenes are pretty much "instant on" beams. And they looks fuckin' kick ass and intimidating!

Who wouldn't be intimidated by an immediate beam of energy suddenly appearing in your general direction?
