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

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.
That's why you go in with a couple of rifles, half a dozen hand phasers strapped to your waist, and a harness loaded up with photon grenades--if you're going to fight Borg, go whole hog and do it right
