Re: Favorite Starfleet Uniform Design
Why aren't they using some sort of body armor during a battle? Seems odd they are just wearing a cloth uniform to fight in. You'd think they would have some powered armor or something..
Body armor would likely be useless against phasers in real life..but maybe there could be some sort of power transformer/energy dampening generator as part of a suit that would do the work of traditional sci-fi armored suits without physically blocking the beam.
