Electromagnetic (EM) Radiation

Electromagnetic radiation will cause interference with the warp engines as well as anything that produces a warp field because it has its own electromagnetic energy.

  • Helm Correction — Paul Astar developed a solution to allow helm navigation controls to function if the ship encountered a comet producing an increased amount of electromagnetic radiation. Use the shields as a counter balance as they will dissipate the EM energy. (A photon torpedo detonation is practically all EM energy) This was derived from his Academy Thesis entitled "Variables of Naturally occurring Electromagnetic Energy Fields". [1]
