    Type 1 hero phaser from Star Trek: The Next Generation. (Paramount-TV, 1987-1994) Hero phaser consisting of cast resin and acrylic with illuminating bar graph display operated by a pushbutton switch on the top of the prop. Measuring 3 ½ x 1 ? in, electronics are accessed via sliding plastic panel on top back. Designed by Rich Sternbach and built by Tom Homsher, it was nicknamed the "cricket," and was rarely used after the first season of TNG. Introduced in the first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, "Encounter at Farpoint," the cricket, originally painted light gunmetal gray, was repainted to the current color in the later seasons and made a final appearance in the Star Trek: Voyager season 5 episode, "In the Flesh," in which "Commander Chakotay" (Robert Beltran) shoots at Species 8472. Light production wear.
