I love how every single shot in TWOK actually mattered, and each shot did severe damage to an unshielded starship.. which is why Meyer made it so that very few shots actually hit in total. I think their "burning" through the hull really worked.
I think the Nu Enterprise would have been destroyed just looking at the first volley of fire it took (while at warp).
Oh and during that warp scene, what's up with the phasers changing course in midstream, shooting forwards and then downwards? It's kind of cool, but kind of hokey. I wonder if it was just done because it looked cool (most likely reason) or because they were traveling faster than the phasers?
They're Macross Type Phasers
Anyone that's seen the Macross anime, knows energy weapons can make angles in space.
