Which is space magic. I know that there's a technobabble justification for it, but the actual effect is that you fire a random coloured beam to make some effect happen. It's space magic in STO, and it's space magic when they did it in the show- but at least in the show it wasn't nearly so magicky. And they fired all kinds of beams in the show.
