Breathing apparatus?Edit

Just wondering if there is any canon reason why she wouldn't be wearing the standard breathing apparatus for Benzites? -- TrekFan Talk 18:00, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

As you can see on the Benzite article, from roughly DS9 season 5 on we never see a Benzite wearing the apparatus again. Now, from a real world standpoint this is probably for simplicity of not having to use that whole steam generating rig and such. From an in-universe perspective, the problem was obviously simply overcome. Perhaps an implant that did the job, or daily injections, who knows? --OuroborosCobra talk 18:17, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Cool. Thanks. I was just wondering, that's all. -- TrekFan Talk 18:36, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

My initial thoughts when I saw this scene were that with her being to only apparent person aboard the runabout, she may have adjusted the enviromental system while the away team were on the surface so she didn't have to use personal breathing apparatus. MikeWard1701 11:29, February 2, 2010 (UTC)
At least one more officer (female human command) is seen on the runabout behind Hoya, so that wouldn't be a possibility. --Jörg 11:43, February 2, 2010 (UTC)
Didn't notice the other officer, will have to watch more closely in future :) MikeWard1701 11:47, February 2, 2010 (UTC)
Actually there were three people on the runabout when it was attacked; Hoya, Bertram and Rooney. All were briefly seen; Hoya (command Benzite), Bertram (command female) and Rooney (operations male) who was sat next to Hoya during the attack. 88.107.139.103 20:03, September 10, 2013 (UTC)
