I was re-watching a few episodes of Enterprise, and suddenly came to realize:
Why did'n they install Air-bags and Seatbelts on shuttles?

I mean, In TNG alone they wrecked several shuttles, often with head injuries.

I know that Air-bags have massive drawbacks (talking from expirience, they aren't always comfortable to come into contact with), but by the 24'th century, you'd think they would have fixed those flaws, and made them comfortable to hit on impact.

This thread was placed in Ten Forward on purpose.

Same reason they've never heard of circuit breakers, seat belts, or pressure suits* on the bridge, and the same reason the big E's warp core can't eject: it's cooler-looking to have redshirts getting killed by getting tossed around the set.

Hehe makes me think of all the times those tubes and cables fall off the ceiling

Why do they keep putting them back up there!


though i think as with most things a bit unusually silly in trek, its to do with the Secret Cabal who maintain the Narrative with their vast array of plot devices

Either that or it was......The ICONIANS!

They could also do that foam filling barrier you see in Demolition Man. Turn 'em into a giant cannoli.
