Re: By Any Other Name

Actually, more than just Mitchell and Dehner were affected on the Enterprise. Nine others were killed, and they had high ESP ratings too.
Ah, very true. It's more like one in fifty who is dangerously sensitive, then.

Voyager probably would have given it a special name, like tri-fluxic-quantum-fold, and have Harry look worried when he said it.
Spock filled that role admirably enough:

Spock: "We are evidently far outside our own galaxy, judging from the lack of traceable reference points. When we exceeded warp speed factor 9.5, we apparently entered a space-time continuum."
On the other hand,

The Kelvin modifications to the engines which will get them to Andromeda in 300 years shot them through the barrier so quickly, nobody had time to get zapped and turned into silvery eyed gods.
But the original Kelvan spacecraft apparently wasn't fast enough to avoid the deadly effects. Would a modified alien starship actually be faster?

so the Enterprise didn't "ricochet off the barrier"
Well, Kirk never ordered a course change. So the Barrier can probably be blamed for turning the ship around, but Kirk and his crew then had to struggle heroically to sail out of the phenomenon again. "Ricochet" might be valid terminology, depending.
