Re: Starfleet Procurement Policy Draft

I don't actually recall a SIF being mentioned in ENT. What I do remember is Trip and Reed talking about making the ship's structural integrity (no field) bear the brunt of the phase cannon recoil. Poking around at Memory Alpha, there's also mention of NX-01 suffering all sorts of nasty stress microfractures during her mission in the Delphic Expanse and that they needed hull polarization to overcome it.

So there's definitely not an SIF in the way we know it in the 24th century going on in ENT.
