Re: Is the USS Vengeance more powerful than the Enterprise E?

The Phasers in TOS seemed to work on the principle of bathing the target in the energy it emitted unless otherwise targetting more precisely for cutting etc

I just assumed the Enterprises shot flooded the entire ship with the equivalent of a hand phaser on a wide angle kill setting, other wise leaving the ship seemingly undamaged but heavily irradiated and slightly warped.

In TOS-R the targetted portion of the ship keeps on glowing blue after the shot ends, until the fatal shot when the entire Excalibur glows for several seconds and begins to list.
