@LoganDice Whoa, whoa, waitaminnit... isn't the whole point of instrument panels and indicators to let you know about stuff like YOUR FREAKIN' SHIELDS FAILING?
But, yeah... basically, it adds to the drama in the battle scenes -- y'know, they take such a hard hit that it surges through the electrical system and blows a console spectacularly.
We ARE talking Original Series here, right?
instrument panels on ships of the other races explode too, just with a higher rate of fatality and worse maiming, the real reason the starfleet ones still explode and throw people back is that they solved the problem ages ago, but the behavior is kept for legacy reasons.
@LoganDice I'll start the implementation of
window.explode() right away!
