Re: Why the lack of personal protection?

They've shown Phaser proof barrels / containers in many phaser fights.

Why couldn't they have used the same material as those barrels / containers and make either small scales or plates and mount them like modern body armor?

Interceptor armor has large plates for front / back.

Dragonskin is based off of lots of tiny discs arranged in a chain mail esque fashion.

Either way would've protected a person from energy blasts in a fire fight.

It makes no sense.

Worf was able to make a temporary shield for that Holodeck malfunction episode.

If they took the time to build a proper portable one, it could probably take quite a few hits before going down.

The sheer number of redshirts that could've avoided dying due to energy blasts.
