After Star Trek V, the Assault Phaser played an even bigger role in Star Trek VI. For this production, Ed Miarecki was hired by Greg Jein to make resin Assault Phasers to supplement the Fiberglass heroes and rubber stunt versions.
Here are photos of one Ed recently sold to Josef from Austria, a long time Star Trek Prop, Costume & Auction Forum member, and the photographer and layout designer of the Battlestar Galactica Auction catalogs.
The COA from Ed states:
“This document certifies that the Star Trek Assault Phaser Prop pictured above was fabricated by me for the film “Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country”. It was returned to me after the production was finished, and has been my personal collection.”
