Type IX Array

This is the armament of choice for many of Starfleet’s larger vessels and some of its medium-sized but patrol/combat-oriented craft. While bulkier and more complicated than its Type VIII counterpart, the Type IX provides excellent firepower with an impressive rate of fire that can only be bettered by Type X, Type XII or Type U weapons.

Recent advances in weapons technology has allowed Starfleet to reduce the operating size for the Type IX’s components, allowing for this array to be employed as the new phaser weaponry of even refitted 23rd century starships.
