Re: your ideas for new Starfleet technology

-Some kind of thing to keep redshirts from being fatally wounded in firefights. You know, something that will block the brunt of the force from a blast. Coouldn't think of anything that could do that though.
-Some kind of thing to keep consoles from exploding. You know, something that would stop a power surge (and not shoving rocks inside the consoles might help.) Can't think of anything that could do that though.
-Some kind of thing to keep any old person from accessing the primary systems from anywhere on the ship and locking the bridge crew out of controls. Can't think of anything that could do that though.
-Some kind of thing to keep people from flying out of their chairs when getting shaken around in battle. Some kind of restraint, perhaps? Can't think of anything that could do that though.
-Some kind of thing to keep the warp core from catastrophically overloading every time Ensign Stupid McFumbles so much as sneezes near it. You know, like some kind of foolproof cutoff switch? Can't think of anything like that though.
