  • Turns out that due to metaphasic radiation ringing the planet it is a veritable fountain of youth and some in the Federation have decided that the way of life for the 600 people living there is expendable in order to reap the benefits of this fountain.

  • A final note: These modification protocols for metaphasic shields will not be effective in Starfleet vessels older than the New Orleans-class ships.

  • This will enable the warp field coils to emit the subspace field in a geometry close to its final form, minimizing the amount of energy required by the shield emitters to shape and stabilize the metaphasic shield.

    The Starfleet Survival Guide

  • Shield emitters in Starfleet vessels commissioned before the U.S.S. New Orleans lacked nanocochrane stabilizers in their frequency stabilizers, and consequently are incapable of maintaining sufficiently precise synchronization with the warp field coils to modulate a metaphasic shield.

    The Starfleet Survival Guide

  • The primary drawback to metaphasic shielding is that it requires enormous amounts of energy, and if it is miscalibrated by even the smallest degree, it will collapse utterly, leaving a vessel completely defenseless.

    The Starfleet Survival Guide

  • It also should be noted that this is only a threat when the metaphasic shield is active; the shield components are not vulnerable to remote interference when the system is offline.

    The Starfleet Survival Guide

  • Once the metaphasic shield is active, be alert for signs of malfunction or improper calibration.

    The Starfleet Survival Guide

  • The presence of a phased ionic pulse will be indicated by the sudden formation of a tetryon field inside the metaphasic shield.

    The Starfleet Survival Guide

  • Even metaphasic shields see section 4.06, “Creating Metaphasic Shielding to Conceal a Ship in a Stellar Corona or Similar Environment,” for more information cannot withstand this level of stress for very long, but they will be your best defense while executing this tactic.

  • Calibrate the metaphasic frequency to the environment.
