Pulse compression wave

Deep Space 9 firing a pulse compression wave

A pulse compression wave was a type of high-energy phaser blast.

In 2369, when three Cardassian Galor-class vessels were attacking Deep Space 9, Miles O'Brien ran a pulse compression wave through one of the station's original Cardassian phaser banks to create the impression Starfleet had already installed more powerful phaser banks. (DS9: "Emissary")
