Kelvin-Era Phaser

I found these pics some months ago. They are indicated as the Phaser prop designed used in the 2009’s Star Trek by the crew of the U.S.S. Kelvin in the scenes at the beginning of the film. Of course, I’ve yet to get a good look at them in the film. But I will say this, I like this design, even more than the Phasers that showed up later aboard Enterprise…This definitely fits the Kelvin, much more rugged than those used on Enterpise.
















































Starfleet Mk I Phaser concept

As I mentioned in a previous post, Star Trek: Enterprise was and is my favorite of the Star Trek television series. One afternoon, as I was looking over my various Star Trek collection items, I took a good look at my Art Asylum Phase Pistol and began to wonder what it might look like if we tweaked the design a little so that it would resemble more of a Phaser. The drawing came together a bit faster than I thought it might. So, here we have my take on what the Starfleet Mk I Phaser would look like. I envision this being issued during the 5th Season missions we never got to see, along with the NX-01 Refit (which is displayed wonderfully in the Star Trek: Ships of the Line 2011 calendar we recently received).
