Some bigger (2 level) Apple stores had glass stair cases to go between floors. They have since modified those stairs . . . :/

You'll want to be careful admitting to any sort of inspiration courtesy of Apple.
I hear their staff-lawyers are looking for their next target.

A mall close to where I live had clear glass walkways around the upper floors... they're still glass...


They just aren't clear anymore.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Wanna talk about safety issues? Let's talk Andoria. Tacofangs, I'm not sure if you and the other guys are aware of this (I hope you are... you make the game after all) but the big jagged rocks there can be climbed and I happened to discover 'The Void' underneath Andoria. I also found out you can't kill yourself by falling, even if it's for 5+ seconds.

And the starbase walkway, well i always found that silly. I mean come on, they put a seat belt on the Enterprise-B's captain's chair, but no handrails here...

Any news on a potential "fix?"

Re: Anime and handrails -

Been to Japan?

Spent 2 weeks noticing things there that would have been illegal in the US, like a distinct lack of hand rails on foot bridges rising 4 or so feet over a shallow Koi pond at one particular Temple. And yet busloads of tourists were walking along it - many of them bemoaning the lack of handrails. Just before the bridge, a guide repeated: please turn around and go the long way around the pond if you feel you cannot safely be on the bridge.

I asked my guide later about this, and the answer I got in short was: In Japan, if you're stupid enough to walk someplace you don't think you can proceed safely, and another path is offered - that's your own damn fault.

Had that serene pond been in the US, the beauty of that bridge over the water would have been destroyed by 4' rails, or made inaccessible to guests, thanks to trial law making it the owner's fault for not stopping a clumsy baby boomer from saying "this is too dangerous for me!" yet continuing anyway.

That all said, if you have never visited or been stationed in Japan, consider it. Spent 2 weeks chasing sakura by bullet train with a Navy friend stationed there, hopping from Nagasaki to Hiroshima to Kyoto to Fuji (Kawaguchi) to Tokyo, and while I'll still be paying that trip off, it was worth every crazy second.

In Santa Cruz, down on the beach next to the boardwalk is the mouth of the San Lorenzo River. Running over the river, and behind the boardwalk are some train tracks, and a Trestle. That also has a small foot path over it on the side. The river under that trestle is very wide and shallow. You can wade across it in the summer.

As a kid, in the 80's, I remember a guy who had dove from the trestle into the river. Hit the bottom and broken his neck. He sued the city. They had to put up "No Diving" signs all along the foot path.

In the Ops level of the FED Fleet Starbase, there is a large curved piece of transparent aluminium arching over the doorway to the Officer of the Watch's room. This doubles as a bridge-like wallkway between the bar/lounge and an elevated platform.

However, the outer side of the walkway does not have a side barrier, so people can simply walk off it and fall right back down on to the main floor of the Ops level.

Whilst players don't actually take any damage this way, it just seems comical that, with all the gimmicky SB special projects the devs devise, there isn't a protective barrier along the outside of the walkway over the door to the OotW room.

Thoughts?
Personally I find it quite handy, I use it when I'm doing the find the padd officer daily

Idiot, everyone knows that you always cannonball in!

Oh well, it is sad that such people are so dumb.....
