Re: Theory About Why Most Don't Care for Enterprise as Much...

This. Having different hardware? That's fine. Oh, the phasers are now called phase pistols, and instead of shooting out a beam that will stun or kill, they ... shoot out a beam that will stun or kill.
Would have been much more interesting for the show if they would have just kept the plasma pistols we saw at the first half of Broken Bow(EM-33 I think it was called).
Having weapons that can only either kill or wound would have created more drama for the show,
when you cant just go and stun people at will. Would have required the writers to be more creative, too.

I kind of liked the weapons that the NX-01 had on the pilot better too
..seemed cool but more dated to the standard phasers of TNG.
