Re: Why the lack of personal protection?

^ That's because shattered glass is a really nasty thing to have spraying into your lap in the middle of a combat situation; if you can't make the glass armored, you don't want it anywhere near you when you're under fire.

Starfleet has transparent aluminum, which -- I should hope -- won't shatter into a spray of tiny sharp particles if the Argo crashes into something.
