Hmm, Kirk: "Alright, get the cutter beams on that hatch! Move!" Should the article be moved to Cutter beam? --Bp 10:20, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

I wonder if this article should be merged with cutting beam as a general discussion of beams which perform a cutting function. 31dot 12:27, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
Different scale. Hand-held vs. Borg cube-mounted. This had a definite name, the other had a "some sort" of name. --Alan 17:18, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
True, however the article on phaser includes both hand phasers and ship-mounted. Was the Borg beam actually called 'cutting beam' or was it just referred to as one? Just wondering.31dot 22:13, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
Looking back this was taken from cutting beam and moved here because this is about a specific tool called a cutter beam. So to answer your other question, in TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II", Worf stated: "Borg cutting beam activated." The previous similar reference from TNG: "Q Who" was Worf stating: "A laser beam is slicing into the saucer section." --Alan del Beccio 22:04, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
