Re: Cause and Effect

^ Consider how much push force you can product through the palms of your hands, for many people it's only about a hundred pounds. But this is enough to move a multi-tonne vehicle across a flat surface.

The force generated by exhausting the flight deck was probably similar to the Enterprise's maneuvering thrusters.
