Phaser Type II
The Type II phaser is the largest standard issue phaser for use on Away Team missions. The larger size of the Type II phaser allows it to contain a larger sarium krellide power cell and four pre-fire chambers (compared with one in the Type I unit) which enable it to achieve an additional eight power settings over the Type I. The settings available include: three for varying levels of "stun," the thermal and disruption settings similar to those in a type I phaser as well as two additional disruption ranges and five more increasingly powerful explosive settings. Like the Type I phaser. the Type II can also be deactivated by the use of ship's computer if within range and when security conditions dictate.
