Re: How many died in Disaster?

...Which would be a bit difficult if all turbolifts behaved like Picard's, and if all doors were as cooperative as the one that locked LaForge and Crusher in with a plasma fire!

OTOH, we know that starships tend to have security bulkheads that fall in place to separate sections - and that there are quite a few of them aboard Kirk's ship, enough to isolate 400 people from 30 without killing anybody ("Day of the Dove"). If Picard's ship is anything like that at all, our conundrum disappears in a puff of smoke and mirrors. Kirk at least could communicate with his trapped crew; Picard's ship would have been in a worse state, with major systems down and internal communications impossible.
