A phaser bore

Phaser bore was a 23rd century Starfleet tool, which utilized a type of cutter beam, to bore through rock at a rate of twenty meters per minute.

Captain James T. Kirk requested a phaser bore in his rescue attempt of Lieutenant Uhura from the Shore Leave Planet in 2269. The planet, however, erected an electronic shield preventing transport of the device to the surface. (TAS: "Once Upon a Planet")
