Re: Why the lack of personal protection?

Well, protection is one thing, but wearing T-shirt, trousers, and office shoes on an away mission or war is just... (see DS9)

In a diplomatic mission, it is acceptable if they wears the usual uniform plus hand gun for self protection though.
In early TOS and again in the movies, away teams beamed down with field jackets and equipment packs. Tad more realistic that way (at least, for peacetime).
