Re: Jem'Hadar Strength

Nicola Tesla, an eccentric supergenius from a century back (very much part of our real world), was a proponent of transmitting electricity through thin air rather than along copper wires. Only recently has practical engineering caught up with him, creating wireless means of charging cell phones (across a distance of just a few inches) or transferring power along microwaves (from one Pacific island to the next so far, but applications from orbit to surface are just around the corner).

Basically, the Federation might have created a wireless power net that would make Tesla proud. This would explain not only Data's "constant recharging" but the fact that we basically never see charging sockets of any sort.
