Re: TOS Phasers

On the other hand, starships are fairly good at spotting intruders who arrive by transporter. If phasers make people disappear the same way transporters do, by phasing them to a parallel realm or state of existence, internal sensors would rather naturally be on constant lookout for both phenomena. Although they'd probably be better at spotting phaser gunfire than transporter phasing, if the former is the more intense phenomenon.

ST6:TUC might also suggest that the stun setting is based on a completely different phenomenon, and for that reason not even excessively repeated stunning will register in the alarm sensors.
