Re: DS9 S5: Nor the Battle to the Strong

Jasper fielded most of your questions just fine, RichardS, but I think I can add a bit to your last one. Mortars in the 24th (not 23rd) century makes sense because they can do something beam weapons can't, namely, fire over cover. It's called "indirect fire" for a reason. And since you mentioned the 23rd century, I'll point out that Kirk himself broke out a mortar to defend Cestus III against the Gorn attack in the episode Arena. If they found use for them in the 23rd century when they had basically all the same weapons they're still using a century later, why would they have abandoned that specific technology?
