[citation][nom]Cryogenic[/nom]This is why any warp capable space ship should be equipped with a main deflector dish. In order to repel any space particles away from the warp bubble. I's just basic warp engine design, really ...[/citation] you beat me to it!
that's not how warp works,
Deflector dish creates black hole in front of ship, witch creates immense pull, controlling this effect with precision makes ship go fast. Impulse provides right power to ride the black hole wake. Computer provides all the needed calculations of course
The dynamics of Star Trek are 18th century - Cook/Kirk go around the Pacific/Galaxy, in transit times that take a few days or weeks and encounter strange new civilizations, some peaceful, some hostile, and stop in on islands/planets where they intervene, fall in love, learn a moral lesson, etc.
.OK, so decelerate slowly. What's the big deal? God, seriously? You need a truck driver to fill in the blanks like this?
lol! I can see it now... Ice Road Truckers in Space.
Rick Yemm, "F*&^ Peice of $h1^, that deflector doesn't decelerate like it should. F*&^."
Hugh Rowland (The Polar Bear), "Well that's cuz you ride it hard, if you didn't it would work like it should", chuckles lightly.
Hugh turns to the camera and minces for a second. "These young guys just don't know $h1^, I've got over 20 years of experience that even Scotty couldn't touch!" The polar bear then laughs out load with a gaffaw as he steers his Star Fleet Long Range Hauler through uncharted space.
