Why is it not more frequent to discharge the energy back out onto, say, the shields, the way DS9 did in "Civil Defense"? Or into space, if the shields weren't up at the time? Might this not be preferable to exploding consoles?
Yeah, but that's nowhere near as exciting as:

-Blaring klaxons
-Blinky red lights
-Benign white smoke

and...

-Exploding consoles


Speaking of which, just what the hell is that benign white smoke?
