Re: Why were ships so fragile in DS9

I guess ships that are not specifically identified, like people, tend to get the 'red-shirt' treatment

In addition, other aspects of space battles in Trek are silly: Ships make huge bank turns in order to change course when, with their technology, they should be able to simply flip around; ships in battle should also be able to jump to and fro quickly instead of plodding around like whales while fleets have this strange determination to fly same-side up as everyone else; I just suspend disbelief and pretend they're all flying around in an atmosphere since they seem to think so. I also assume that ships crewed by named characters have special "important main cast" shielding.
