It is said that the hull life of most Federation ships is 100 years, maybe 150 years on some ships like the Excalbur. I guess it's entirely possible that the ship line could still exist 200 years later. I personally would have wanted to see a more futuristic design like some of the ship 3d models I'...

hmmm... that's a pretty good option though I agree it would have no visible effects except that the ship would last longer in combat. That would kinda act like a sort of defensive countermeasure (like chaff and flare on a fighter jet). It would divert the firepower to somewhere else so that the ship...

I know that the Corbomite Reflector will not act quite as a shield because I have tried it on ships with a cloak enhancer and a phase cloak (really cool to do by the way). One important way it doesn't act like a shield: if there is shield protection on a ship (that means no weapons can damage the sy...

That's what I was trying to find out - the only thing that can be used so far was the Shield Remod wave - that will give a ship the ability to resist all fire on it, which shields it even when cloaked - but it doesn't work how the shields do - it works for a certain amount of time.

Numbazix - I agree about Saddam. He was told to end the situation peacefully and we gave him the 'or else...' clause. It was Saddam who chose war instead of having the sense to back off and allow the UN do inspections and complete other anti-terrorism anayses. Whether or not the whole thing was abou...

Absolutely - if the media is to manipulate the public, it should do so with that more positive spin. If anything matters the most during this war, it's morale and union - an upbeat outlook and attitude and a less separated nation (united we will stand).

A special weapon should still work if you put it on a HP that already had a standard weapon on it - it actually seems to depend on the SOD model of the ship. Most ships that works for, but sometimes it doesn't for others.

That's for sure! Compared to the amount of shoot we got on us in WWII, this war in no way compares! Much of the media is not concerned at all with the wars of men, only their own 'scoop.' They will be the ones to stand in the middle of a battle to film it, as long as they knew that they had no part ...

The amazing thing I notice is that Picard was transported aboard Shinzon's vessel seemlessly - the transporter on Shinzon's ship was able to penetrate shields of the Enterprise and transport Picard aboard. To be at a tactical advantage, Shinzon could have just tried that again, albeit that the plot ...

That would be interesting - have the shield remodulation weapon work on special energy instead of having it be time-based. Of course, this weapon would not depend on the amount of fire power that hit it but just the special energy remaining. Also, for the setup of the shield remodulation weapon - th...
