That's a strange reasoning. So they wouldn't "appear afraid"? Well, your reasoning is no more strange than anyone elses, I suppose, I simply disagree with you on that.


Thanks for writing!

>I never understood why the bridge was a little dome right on top. Seems to me that enemy ships should just fire at the bridge and nothing else, which would take out the main officers. Should the bridge be tucked away as far in the ship as possible, and maybe with a shield all of it's own? Make the plating extra thick there? In Nemesis, Shinzon fired on the bridge and look what happened. It blew the window out, (some people disagree if it's a view screen or an actual window), sucked a guy out into space, and basically frakked them up.

Wow actually you make an excellent point I never thought about it before. The only thing I can think of is that the Federation figures their shields will always hold out so they didn't think to stick the bridge somewhere harder to shoot at.

Yeah but if they were afraid they wouldn't be in space in the first place.
