^Yeah, as I've said, the concept could
have been handled reasonably, but the implementation
that we got was ridiculous. If it were a light ablative plating built into the hull as on the Defiant
-- not interfering with thrusters, sensors, or heat radiators -- with the addition of a replicator system to replenish it as needed, that would make sense. But the "Batmobile armor" that materialized this huge thick layer of medieval plating around a ship? That's just stupid as hell.
