Imagine it's the 13th century, a time traveler from the future is interfering in a war between two armies. This time traveler meets with one army, offers to provide them with a dozen 24th century model Type 2 phasers, specifically the ones from the TNG movies, later DS9 seasons and Voyager, to defeat their enemy. To demonstrate what a phaser is, the time traveler uses it to vaporize one of the army's horses, after which the whole dozen are offered to the army at no further charge or anything. Is this an acceptable trade? Do you think the cost of one horse is worth the acquisition of twelve phasers to a 13th century army? Or are they being cheated somehow? Would you accept this deal were you leading this army? Let the discussion begin.
