When facing a horde of Borg drones or a legion of Jem'Hadar soldiers, why didn't they switch to wide beam?
Presumably there is some kind of significant trade-off to be made when using a phaser on wide-beam rather than narrow/normal mode - I'd hazard a guess that it uses vastly more power, perhaps to such an extent that only a few wide-beam shots are possible, thereby leaving oneself vulnerable should the engagement continue.
