Re: What is an "ion pod?"

Considering the ship was making way at Warp 1+ when the pod was ejected, I wonder if the reason that the ion pod threatened the safety of the ship was because it was an attachment? The ship could withstand the stress of the ion storm but with the pod attached it might have had a higher chance of ripping off and doing some major damage on its own.
The pod being a weak point that endangered the ship is pretty easy to understand. The fact that there needed to be a person in there to take readings is what is hard to swallow and takes a creative explanation.
