Congratulations on your choice of the MARK II HAND PHASER. This compact unit will provide years of faithful service under the most rugged conditions. It is with the MARK II HAND PHASER which Starfleet and the fabled crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise (1701-A) are outfitted. Now it is available for you to use.
Before opening the box, inspect it for damage. It was three dimensional when it left the factory. If it is no longer that way, please contact your local transporter company and have them restore it to its original dimensions.
Take off the lid and examine the contents. You will find a static force field holding your MARK II HAND PHASER in place. Release the field before attempting to remove the phaser.
Prior to usage of your new MARK II HAND PHASER you must license it with the proper authorities. Once licensed, you will receive a security card. Insert this card into the base of your unit. It will then automatically power up. If you do not live in a place where security cards are used, just press the security system override button beside the card slot.
We, Phaser Works, can not be held liable by you, the consumer, for any incident caused directly, or indirectly, by the MARK II HAND PHASER.
Your new MARK II HAND PHASER is a versatile piece of equipment. The following are some of the various things you can do with it:
The MARK II HAND PHASER does not need maintenance or servicing as it is self sufficient. The matter-antimatter battery should NOT be opened or recharged by trained and valuable Phaser Works service personnel. Other companies are welcome to try.
Do not be afraid to experiment with your new MARK II HAND PHASER.
-- Survive and Succeed!
