Re: TOS Phasers

Could there be an element of Transporter tech or theory at work in a phaser? It might account for why there's no collateral damage. The phaser's beam works as a very crude transporter effect: destroying the target, but limiting the collateral damage.

Plus, that connector looked like it was specifically designed for a phaser to seat into.
I'm not really convinced...

They probably had to use duct tape to keep the prop from falling out!

Maybe (in universe) by TNG's time phasers have some sort of universal charge part or have a "emergency setting" that allows them to be used a battery packs for Starfleet tech.
