Re: Earth Spacedock and its true purpose?

It does sound somewhat odd, you'd think that their EVA suits provide sufficient protection from the "free radiation of space" (especially in the 23rd Century).

And we did see that in TMP unless the ship was assembled by Workbees and that guy waving was just out to do a little spacewalk before radiation levels became unhealthy and forced him to return "indoors".

I presume if we look for further elaborations in the other novelizations, the writers took the Okuda posture when it came to the working principle of the infamous Heisenberg compensators: They work adequately and do the job they were designed for.
