I always pictured the phaser lance as a high powered starbase phaser emitter that was never meant for a starship. Due to the large internal capacity and flexibility of the galaxy class they figured out a way which involved major refitting.
In the little story I'm writing/illustrating it's bunker buster designed to take out planetside bases.

Honestly though, I don't understand why the Galaxy-X doesn't get a sector space boost.
