The item was a "for fun" loot drop in the same vein as Tubers and Cryo-Grenades which only affect allies were from the Breen series. It was given so that people could fire a blue phaser like the TOS Enterprise uses, and it has the TV sound effect. It was not meant to be uber-useful to anyone (thought it does have a couple of minor tricks). It's just something people might want to slot in their ship before going back in time to deal with the comet.
