Re: TMP Refit - Why?
I'm sure he made other suggestions, that he assumed were followed but were not, like the phasers being powered by the warp engines.
I'm not sure what this means. Are you saying that the idea for increasing phaser intensity by routing them through the warp drive was Kirk's idea? If so, why wouldn't he have thought about that while the Enterprise
was flying through the wormhole? Decker had to explain to him that the phasers wouldn't work in the event of engine imbalance.
