Re: when will they learn that a Manual Override can never be Offline?
I'd be more worried about the high rate of failure of the fail safe systems. i.e. the Warp core ejection system. i.e a failure of the ejection system should actually cause the core to be ejected.
And then there's that useless warp core shield in Nemesis. Sure, it might do other things that we're not aware of, like stabilizing the intermix chamber or something technobabbly like that, but what good is it if it drops with a single hit? The script put it up just so that it could go down, maybe there was some change leftover in the SFX budget.
