The EMH transfer all power from life support to other systems.. then at the end of the episode star fleet officers beam over.. maybe they didnt need to breath in the few seconds the were shown.. lol

You just have to assume that he re-life supported the ship during the commercials.

turning off life support doesn't just make all the air go away. With life support off a crew can still breathe for a few hours.

I wonder if it turns off all the heating or if the ship generates enough heat to last a while.

It's freezing here atm so that's what I'm thinking of

Re: message in a bottleWe just noiticed..

Yes the heat turns off, but yes it takes hours for a ship of that size to cool down.

Portal turned off the heat on Enterprise in The Last Outpost.

We saw Bev and Jean-Luc huddling together under a blanket.

You would think that in that situation that there would be publicly mandated orgies to save lives and toes.

Odo turned off the heat to his runabout inside a spacial ice float, but he and Weyoun didn't die immediately (Or at all... No, sorry, Weyoun killed himself.).

Re: message in a bottleWe just noiticed..

When I am rolling in wealth I am going to get central heating and I am going to have it cranked up to 28C every single day and forever and if anyone goes NEAR the thermostat with the intention of lowering it I will scream at them "THAT IS LIFE SUPPORT DON'T TOUCH IT DON'T TOUCH IT WE WILL ALL DIE IF YOU TOUCH IT!!!!"

You live in Australia.

Even in the harshest of winters, you'd still need airconditioning to bring the room down to 28.

28C is 10 degrees warmer than is a civilized temperature.

Re: message in a bottleWe just noiticed..

Temperature denotes "civilization"?

Maybe instead of solders, they should have sent a hundred billion dollars worth of Airconditioners to the Middle East?

(Which is still significantly cheaper than what actually happened.)

I hear that there's only 2 reasons why they're so angry over there, even the nice ones on our side, hell, even "us" who we send over there after a couple hours, its because of the heat and that they can never get all the sand out of their ass.

Eh, we've seen Trek's life support failing in numerous episodes lead to instantaneous passing out as suits the needs of the plot. In reality you'd have several hours of breathable air, just like if you clogged the air filter in an underground bunker.

Ugggh I couldn't handle that...I hate the heat. I like a nice, chill room.

Where I live, there are four fairly distinct seasons and I definitely prefer the Fall and Winter. The only thing I like about Summer is that I can go to the ocean.

But it should make the gravity turn off!

Re: message in a bottleWe just noiticed..

Environmental controls are separate buttons from life support.

Besides.

If the ship is moving and you turn the gravity off, structural integrity, inertial dampers, it's all integrated, the crew would be subject to the forces resulting from the speed of the ship, which is hundreds of times the speed of sound and a certainty to liquefy the entire crew instantly if it's doing much else other than standing still.
