Re: It drives me nuts that Voyager beams people with shields up

if they know their shield frequencies, then they can beam through shields, and most obviously their own. hell the navigation shirls 9deflectors) are always on and they're always beams though effortlessly, but since the enemy they're at work is against is space-dust, they can fix the navigation shields to standard since most of the bridge crew are smarter than rocks.

However, if you don't change your frequency often, any blind bugger will be able to "shoot" or beam through your shields.
This is contradicted by so many other episodes specificly stating as plot points "we can't lower our shields to beam our people back or the enemy vessel will blow us up."
