Behold, Your newest form fitting spacesuit for Mars!
 
I don't like the color, but the bubble dome looks retro. :D

Maybe they can modify it for spacewalks too? I remember reading somewhere that the human body won't actually explode when exposed to space, but the tissues would end up swelling. I could be terribly wrong though... :(

I'll take 2!

Not gadgety enough. Needs jetpack with wings and a wristband tricorder with laser.

On a more serious note: are all those little red lines criss-crossing the suit supposed to be the "ribbing" they were talking about? If the lines are pure fashion statement, I'm not really impressed, and would think fashion should be a far second to function when considering hostile non-Earth environments. I do agree that a slimmer suit would offer greater functionality.

red and black ribbing. ugh! what an eye sore.

if i remember right CO has something like this bubble dome helmet, considering both games are similar enough, respray a copy and throw it in STO.

Great. Now all we need is a well-funded and well-planned MANNED MISSION TO MARS so we can try it out...


Seriously, shouldn't we be colonizing the freaking place by now? It sucks when real life catches up with science fiction timelines and we're still stuck here. :mad:

Funny thing is that progress is not linear or universal.
Todays computer technology is pretty much way beyond what we have seen in any of the Star Trek series.
Honestly static LCARS displays is so last century in a day and age with dynamic interactive multi-touch displays and motion/gesture control systems. :P
And just imagine what starfleet could do with smartphones!

Yet our space tech is still in its infancy, and 99% of the world also still relies on internal combustion engines to propel their vehicles.

Where's my Gundam to go along with that?

It's true, explosive decompression is a myth. Your blood simply boils away and your lungs decompress. Your eyes also freeze over if they're not closed.

I can only imagine. Pretty easily. In graphic detail.
