I kind of agree with those who are saying that Star Trek is unrealistic in this respect.
But on the other hand... look at some crime series where the investigators crack jokes while standing next to a dead body and it seems to affect them even less than anything affects the characters on Star Trek....... I don't know..... if you're standing right next to the corpse of a person who has been killed at close quarters rather than be blown up by a neat little phaser beam or photon torpedo from hundreds of miles away.... shouldn't that affect you more?
There's a reason Battlestar Galactica chose bullets rather than blasters the previous show had, they wanted to show the blood and gore.
