TYPE 2A PHASER

In 2366 Starfleet introduced it's new Type 2 Phaser, having a full 16 counter display, on early models, the design was continually refind, using a variety of composite materials, and continually upgrading the capability of the unit, until the unit became so reliable that even the power meter on later models were removed.

Introduced in Season 3 of ST: The Next Generation, the Cobra Head Phaser prop soon became a fan favorite. Several paint schemes were used, and ultimatly even the body shape, and style was refind, all the way to it's last use in ST: Voyager when the props were finally retired.
