I don't like the color, but the bubble dome looks retro.

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...

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.

Why not both?
How many Starfleet Engineers does it take to exchange an Anti-positronic Photon Emitter?

Engineer: "Now let's see ..."
Unknown doctor: "If you just reverse the polarity of the neutron flow, you can do it more easily. Shall I show you?"
Engineer: "Are you part of this unit?"
Unknown doctor: "I am part of UNIT, yes."
Engineer: (sighs) "I'll go get the brigadier."
(they return)
Brigadier: "Now, what seems to be the problem, Doctor?"
Doctor: "They need to exchange one anti-positronic photon emitter for another. I could do it with my eyes closed, if necessary."
Brigadier: "I imagine you could. Let him proceed, engineer."
Engineer: "Yes, sir."
(exchange is made in under one minute)
Brigadier: "Any other problems, engineer?"
Engineer: "The world needs to be saved from evil aliens."
Brigadier: "Again? This is getting monotonous."
Doctor: "I believe that's my line, Brigadier."

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.
