    It just seems to me that it should internal dampening should be gently pushing you away from wall and anything with a sharp edge... And the closer you get the harder it should be resisting you, and the effect would feel like everything is coated in a foot of marshmellow.

    Why not just pad the freaking walls?

    The most dangerous part of a bridge was those damn railings with people always falling over them.

    Imagine getting caught by the neck on one of those things?

    Well I hate wearing my seat belt too, so it's refreshing to see we've evolved past the need to wear them in the 24th century. :lol:

    Finding new officers is cheaper than retrofitting the fleet with seatbelts.

    Besides, if crew weren't dying so easily, there would never be room for advancement.

    How many people would have to die before Harry moved up a notch? One third of the crew?

    All of them, including Seven, she had more Starfleet knowledge in her nanoprobe laden pinky than poor Harry. :lol:

    Janeway programmed the ship to self-destruct in this scenario.

    I can see Voyager doing one massive eye roll with Harry in command and directing one of her phaser arrays into her warp core to just be done with it all. :rofl:

    And as the ship bursts into flames, Harry curses himself, "Oh no! I did it again! I killed them! I killed them all! Maybe I can--" BOOM

    There was three crew left in Workforce, Harry, The ECH and Chakotay...

    Chakotay left the ship to rescue Janeway and still Harry was squabbling like Bart and Lisa about who was in charge. Harry asked who was topdog as Chkotay turned his back on this dynamic duo to actually take care of business, where the indians reply was "Work it out yourselves!" becuase he had no preference over which fuckup was his second officer and which dolt was still an Ensign.

    If the ECH could have said "Computer, Delete the Ensign" he would have, so what was stopping Harry from turnabout behaviour?

    And not just the Janeway, but the Neelix and the Delaney sisters too!

    wouldn't that require some kind of forward thinking and actively doing something though? I mean the brain power alone required for such an action is beyond harry's capabilities.

    How about if they had switched Harry unbeknownst to us with MU Harry and we had to gradually figure it out?

    No, that was first featured in TMP.

    If there had been seatbelts aboard the ships, fewer redshirts would have died for the sake of cultural posterity.

    That happened at least twice.

    Non Sequitor and Deadlock.

    No one cared.

    It took them 15 minutes to figure it out in Demon, and months for anyone to figure out that they were all copies in the sequel to that story.
