It's the equivalent of saying "Let's split up" in a horror movie. Once this is uttered by a character, they will be dying soon.
Unless it's a main character, in which case they usually just end being wounded by a phaser.

They could go ahead and put all of the characters through main character training. They would all be invincible and immortal.

Well backup systems have been mentioned several times throught the years.
Backups of backups, too. Redundancy isn't the problem with Starfleet ships. It's that everything seems to fail at once or isn't available.

--Sran
A redundant system is never connected to the other system(s). Of course, it would not serve the plot of these stories... but, it still bothers me as a needed fix.

The life support system should be triple redundant for each compartment of the ship. Not centrally located where one shot can take out the entire system.

Emergency access to the bridge by way of ladder or stairway.

I seem to have heard that somewhere before. More than once.
This is a line a Star Trek villain should never say. Defeat is usually instantaneous once you say this.
I know. I mean look at Generations, Lursa and B'Etor have the upper hand but surely they must guess they won't hold it for long.

Rather than their first shot hitting next to the deflector dish, they should have fired on the Bridge then the warp core, destroying the ship in three/four ships maximum.
