However, there are situations where firing a bunch of weapons is useful. For example, fighting a carrier's minions.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:US...ger_battle.jpg is canon support for firing many weapons at once.
every other phaser example shows single high power shots, because 1 full power shot hits a lot harder then several weak shots. examples like that were there are several weak shots exist because 1 full power shot for each of them would be overkill. just shows how versatile arrays are.
