But how could you get that feeling, seeing as you couldn't have held them down yourself? (I didn't see much of VOY or ENT, though).
I don't even know what you mean. I would think that in a high volume area there would have to be something to let you know you changed the settings.

Re: How many settings on a Phaser

I mean that because you've watched the series, you must have heard the mini-beeps accompanying a change in setting and seen the changing rows of green lights, but anything else is unnecessary speculation, unless you can quote a piece of dialogue regarding vibration. There is enough feedback to show that a setting was changed to some value; I'm just wondering why the user should be required to count the beeps or the lights, rather than have a look at a mini-readout saying "16". The cheapest clock can have it, so why not a phaser?

Re: How many settings on a Phaser

A few function settings. On pure cutting you dial the knob for more finite adjustments.
