      Star Trek phasers ain't the same as star wars shitty pew pew guns. They actually do something. Considering it only said "Phaser", that could also mean we can get a Phaser Beam Array from the starship. Star Trek all the way!

      Light sabers are powered by the force. In order for them to exits, the force must exist. If the force exists, you can learn its ways.

      I doubt you'd have Jedi powers along with the lightsaber. Probably cut off an arm or some shit. Better safe than sorry.

      Also, Phasers have multiple settings. I don't have to kill anyone , I can just stun them. Or set my phaser to kill >:D

      Lightsabers also have different power settings. You can reduce it so you're not killing people.

      Lightsabers aren't powered by the force, they are just a piece of technology powered by special crystals. If lightsabers required force to work, how the heck do General Grevious and the Dark Force use them? Besides, your lightsaber can't help you if I use the stun setting on my phaser and incapacitate your ass.

      According to the official Star Wars Wiki: "The weapon consisted of a blade of pure plasma emitted from the hilt and suspended in a force containment field. The field contained the immense heat of the plasma, protecting the wielder, and allowed the blade to keep its shape. The hilt was almost always self-fabricated by the wielder to match his or her specific needs, preferences and style. The hilt was also built similarly to his or her master's lightsaber as a mark of respect. Due to the weightlessness of plasma and the strong gyroscopic effect generated by it, lightsabers required a great deal of strength and dexterity to wield, and it was extremely difficult—and dangerous—for the untrained to attempt using. However, in the hands of an expert of the Force, the lightsaber was a weapon to be greatly respected and feared. To wield a lightsaber was to demonstrate incredible skill and confidence, as well as masterful dexterity and attunement to the Force." Therefore it does not need force to operate and is almost impossible to use without the force. So, since the question says you would only be getting a lightsaber and not force powers, it would be nothing more than a very awesome looking paperweight. A phaser can be used by anyone and would actually have a functional use for the wielder.

      You get a lightsaber guys, nothing else. Neither the force, nor awesome sword training for it. The phaser is (If I understand that right) like a gun with different settings. And I clearly can use a gun more effectivly then a sword without having training with either of them.

      @iamjonahXD You're clearly a Star Trek fan so you have no knowledge of the technology. You could shoot a bullet at the lightsaber and if the saber was bigger then the bullet the bullet would disintegrate when it makes contact with the lightsaber. its the same concept of cutting through metal walls. I found these on a forum talking about the question "A phaser is just a more advanced particle beam generator and lasers are also particle beam generators and they are always deflected by a lightsaber." And "It would be like if the blaster fired a stream. No difference." So, are you implying the phaser will pass right through the lightsaber and hit the Jedi in the face or what?

    *Picard Facepalm* Phasers can be used by anyone.Phasers can be mounted on vehicles and ships. And they can be aimed. I can also put them on spread. I can put them in my doorways and vaporize those without the password. Phasers have multiple functions. A light saber must be wielded in hand with Jedi power. Practically useless to the average man.

    Light sabers are cool and all, but I'm not a Jedi, so all the reflection Jedis can do would be useless. Long range, nearly unlimited lifetime, lightweight, and I can rig it as a high-powered explosive device. It's more useful in a pinch to someone without much training.

    Lightsabers are made of crystals harnessed by the force. Therefore you must have the force to use one. The only exception is General Grevious. He got his four lightsabers by killing other Jedi with a blaster. F.Y.I the crystals in lightsabers are the same ones used in the Death Star laser, BOOM
