Does anyone know what happened to the phaser that Chekov threw to interrogator on the USS Enterprise in 1986? I could have sworn there was a story following that incident somewhere. Or even a fan fiction.

I don't know. It would be useless now that they left 1986. They most likely took it apart to try to figure out what it was.

Wasn't his phaser fried by the the radiation from the nuclear reactor? If so they might not have been able to fully figure out how the thing worked if it had been badly damaged.

It didn't work because of it. It interferred with it.

It's not clear what became of Chekov's equipment, as his communicator and Starfleet identification were also taken by military personnel. Somewhere, the minions of the Department of Temporal Investigations are having an emergency meeting.

Read Greg Cox's "Eugenics Wars" trilogy of books. According to those, Chekov's Klingon phaser, as well as the Ferengi ship from DS9's "Little Green Men" were reverse engineered at Area 51 (a scifi writer's best friend), and eventually were used to create the experimental ship, "Botany Bay" (re-christened when she was used to deport Khan and company, by no less than Gary Seven and company). I know the books probably sound like they're all over the place, but Cox's meticulous understanding of the Trekverse (past and present) permeates his books, and really makes them work. The Khan books really fill in a lot of missing pieces of that puzzle. Great stuff!
