Pulse Phaser Cannon
One of the first starships to employ pulse phaser cannons, the Miranda class fed its pair of cannons directly off of the same power transfer conduits that supplied the ship's warp nacelles. Thus, these weapons were able to deliver a considerable amount of punishment compared to the standard set of type-7 phaser emitters also installed along the vessel's saucer. This innovative design principle of channeling energy directly from the warp plasma conduits to the phaser cannons has remained largely unchanged in later ships equipped with these types of weapons such as the Defiant class.
