If this were a Star Trek episode the scene would include a Romulan vessel putting a hit on the USS Enterprise while Captain Kirk was putting more power in the shields and arming a photon torpedo.  Everyone would cling to their seat while performing their duties to commence counterattack.  Not that I have been watching
