You know to deflect things like those pesky hyrdogen atoms out of the way of the ship to avoid just such an issue. Geeze, that's 1960's Trek lore, that has always been included on the Enterprise regardless of letter.

The author of the article was more interested in making a point about high speed in space more than commenting on Trek. On Trek he displayed more ignorance than knowledge.
