Re: Phaser Settings - When did they use one option over other?

Lethal force has always been an option in regards to phaser weaponry, even during TOS (Kirk sometimes had to give an order for phasers to be set on stun during a landing party). In TNG's very first episode, we saw a "cricket" phaser that was set on stun, but many other times we saw phasers drawn and already employed on a lethal setting.
