Re: Star Trek: TMP questions and observations
Yeah, the rad suits coming on ubiquitously for the first warp entry was a nice touch.
They wear them later in the film, perhaps in part just to stay prepared for when the engines get fully revved.
They also wore them a lot in TWOK, so it would seem that they were really needed even after the post-TMP proper shakedown, though I guess one could also argue that since it was a training vessel by then, they were merely observing the extreme protocols for training purposes, and/or staying prepared against the possibility of cadet blunders.
