Re: TWOK Phasers: Visceral... and Rare?

Marc Cushman claims the effect was left out due to the rush to get the episode to air. I suspect that's just speculation on his part, though.

In any event, the Blu-Rays have both versions, and as far as changes go, adding a beam to Scotty's phaser doesn't bother me all that much. The phasers have beams in every other case (well, unless they obviously forgot to put them in; see McCoy just standing there with a phaser drawn in "Return of the Archons" while Spock and Kirk do all the shooting).
