Re: Why the lack of personal protection?

I'm not sure the properties would follow from each other, or even be installable in one and the same unit. But yeah, it does make sense that each Trek era from TAS onwards at least would be able to quickly whip out a portable forcefield system that can keep the rain out and the breathable air in. On the other hand, the presence of solid physical protection in all eras also suggests that the technology doesn't grow more useful with time; perhaps all the evolution goes into miniaturizing it, and just possibly making it a tad more reliable?
