I think the effects of the hull plating were actually some sort of electrical discharge caused from the impact of weapons against the hull. The plating is after-all electricly charged, and i'm sure that energy striking the hull would make it release some of it's electrical energy.

Perhaps, perhaps not. EM radiation has to be of the right frequency to dislodge electrons in any given metal; hence aluminum in the microwave arcs, and gallium (something with gallium in it anyway) is used in solar cells. If the particle weapons shot at Enterprise aren't of the right frequency, no electricity would appear. Also, as I said, I have shots of the glow occurring when the plating was *not* polarized, so I think in reality it was just an FX thing - "let's make a cool blue glowy thing! Dude, hit this bong!"

Back to hull breaches...(oh joy)

I was thinking. Very rarely do we see ships with pieces of hull blown away, aside from the dominion war, and a select few episodes here and there. Yet, we constantly hear of a breach on deck 10,11, or 35 or what not ( especially in Voyager). That is probably because the fx people dont want to constantly damage and repair a model. I think that most hull breaches anyways are just small fractures, like when an area of dry skin on your knuckle splits open, and not like cuts that you get when you skin your knee. That would explain why we normally dont see anything, as they could simply be small splits in the hull, possibly the size of a hi-liter. That would still qualify as a hull breach, as the hull has.... well, breached.

What color of the spectrum would the vaporised metal have from the hull?

No, no excuses damnit, if your going to sound dumb you have to do it like the rest of us!

No, sadly enough, it wasn't. It was a flash back to my high school days and my Introduction to Physical Science class and the stuff we burned to see what colour it was. This was the rough part of the class for a color blind guy. My lab partner was hot though, so it was allllllriiiiight.

We couldn't burn anything in high school chemistry. The school chemistry lab's gas system was 50 years old and nobody was sure if turning the main valve would cause a disastrous leak or not.

Sounds like my old university.

I have plenty of experience in biology. I bought a Tamagotchi in 1998... And... it's still alive.

I am actually not comfortable using the bunsen burner. kind of silly to be afraid of, but a nice addition to my list of phobias. Today though, we had to do a lab revolving around the MELTING OF ICE!!! The most R-tarded thing i have ever done it is.

I was in a university honors-level biology class. We had a lab one day which revolved around exhaling through straws into beakers of phenol; the carbon dioxide turned it from red to yellow. I believe we also held up a bottle of plant extract to see how it was green when you saw the light reflecting off of it, but red when you saw the light *through* it. I couldn't believe I didn't choose that week to skip...
