Just had the same issue with the first room Force fields not dropping. Had one member not make it into the room and we tried to go on with out them, but when we went to the consol we had no option to select it. So we all decided to jump into the green haze and wipe. We then got stuck in the transporter room and no force fields dropped. We had to leave and take the STF Leaver penalty. Kinda sucked.
