A cutting beam is a beam of directed energy which is used to perform a cutting function.

Borg starships are known to have the ability to generate cutting beams of great power, strong enough to slice sections of a starship, or even a planet, open with great precision. In conjunction with the Borg tractor beam, their cutting beams are used to "scoop" pieces of ships or cities for assimilation by Borg drones and collectives. (ENT: "Regeneration"; TNG: "Q Who", "The Best of Both Worlds", "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II")

An Excelsior-class starship's[1] saucer section was destroyed by a Borg cutting beam at the Battle of Wolf 359. The USS Saratoga was also hit by a cutting, suffering severe damage resulting in a warp core breach. (DS9: "Emissary")

Notes

  1. It is uncertain whether the Excelsior-class mentioned here is the USS Melbourne or not. See USS Melbourne for more information.
