Tactical station phaser

Worf retrieves a hidden phaser from his console

The tactical station was one of the primary weapons control stations found on the bridge of a starship. This station allows the tactical officer to control the ship's phasers, torpedoes, and shields. 24th century Starfleet tactical stations also often access/control communications functions as well as the ship's long range sensors. The tactical station may also be known as the "weapons station." (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

During the mid-23rd century Constitution-class starships the tactical station was operated from the navigation and helm and worked in conjunction with the phaser control room located elsewhere on the ship. (TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver")

Some Galaxy-class starships secure phasers at the tactical station for security personnel use. (TNG: "Ship in a Bottle")

Defiant-class starships have two tactical stations, on opposite sides of the bridge. (DS9: "Defiant")
