The phaser control room was a section aboard Constitution-class starships responsible for the coordination and maintenance of the ship's phaser weapons. These rooms were manned by phaser gun crews. They controlled the phasers from a phaser station. These rooms were located on Deck 5. (TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver", "Balance of Terror")
In 2266, the forward phaser room of the USS Enterprise sustained heavy damage in battle with a Romulan Bird-of-Prey, causing the majority of the crewmembers stationed there to be injured and require treatment in sickbay. This left Lieutenant Robert Tomlinson manning the room alone, although he was later supplemented by Lieutenant Stiles. Due to the battle damage, a phaser coolant seal was breached, causing the room to fill up with the toxic substance. This resulted in Tomlinson and Stiles both losing consciousness. Although Stiles was saved by Spock, Tomlinson died as a result of his exposure. (TOS: "Balance of Terror")
