Take A Look At The Star Trek: Discovery Phasers

Star Trek: Discovery Phaser Pistols & Canons Revealed!

Star Trek: Discovery is now in full on hype mode! Today, we have our best look at the Starfleet phaser pistols and phaser canons that will be used on the new series. This comes just a day after the Starfleet communicators were revealed by CBS through social media on Monday.

The show takes place in the prime timeline and is set approximately ten years before Captain Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise explored the galaxy in Star Trek: The Original Series.

With San Diego Comic-Con kicking off this week, we expect to have some major news coming out of the big Star Trek: Discovery panel taking place on Saturday.

Take a look at the new phasers that will be used on the show below.

Star Trek: Discovery launches on CBS and CBS All Access on September 24.

A connection to “The Cage”?

The Discovery phasers are reminiscent of those used by Starfleet Captain Christopher Pike in The Original Series pilot “The Cage”.

    THANK YOU!! Finally a phaser that looks like a cross between TOS and the cage and not some faggotty silver phaser that looks like it should have its own show in vegas.

      You do realize that us goddam FAGGOTS were building models, working cameras, painting sets and writing scripts, yes? I guess we are lucky you didn’t throw in anything about Jews…

        I did not mean that word in that context. The new trek movies were too bright for me, everything looked like it belonged in a vegas show. I had hoped when they announced the movies things would be a lil more TOS rather then silver this, silver that.Hell the Enterprise reminded me of popeye, the engines were his arms. And that word in the UK also means cigarettes, so I didn’t mean it in the way you thought I did.

          Don’t explain yourself. He knew how you meant it. He’s just some social justice warrior…

    If only they’d done the same with the ship and uniforms…(and Klingons…)

    It would be very cool if an acrylic beam emitter popped out of the nozzle that you set the phaser to use. I always like the TOS clear beam emitter.

    That’s a pretty good looking phaser, I have to say. I like the inclusion of the little pop out phaser, too.
