Forcefields, since their introduction in Star Trek have fueled the imagination of viewers and writers of future episodes alike.  Forcefields have been shown to be able to do far more than just confine someone in a holding cell.  They are the magic behind the Holodeck’s feeling of reality giving form to the characters and objects that mimics the feel of the real world counterpart.  They can be used to sterilize surgeon's hands and keep patients from being able to move as well as keep an area quarantined in medical settings. They are used to contain fires starving the flames of oxygen and keeping it from spreading.  In emergencies they keep the air in by closing breaches in the hulls of starships and space stations.  Forcefields can even be used to create breathable places in the harshest conditions imaginable; like on the surface of an asteroid or holding back millions of pounds of water on the bottom of a sea.


This week our question is: What use of Forcefields do you find most impressive?
