I'd like to see, you know, pressure doors. Ships lose power spontaneously so often, that I really wouldn't feel safe with nothing but a forcefield between my nice breathable atmosphere, and the not breathable bits outside.
Sometimes I'll watch an episode where they won't be able to send a probe somewhere cause it's too fragile and sucky, and the thought occurred that a dedicated science ship could carry shuttle or runabout sized drones (remote controlled of course), which would be designed to withstand extreme extreme xtreme situations.
I think most of us realize what can be done, but there's no incentive to espouse. If one is committed to letting the brain juices flow we're talking about turning the ST universe upside down and inside and out. I mean, I (and no doubt a bunch of others) could go on for pages and pages doing just that, but what's the point? At least for me, it's not worth the time to try to fix ST.
