How do emperor penguins survive underwater long after their oxygen should be depleted? "This made them think that the penguins were doing the animal version of rerouting power from the shields to the warp core." I don't think that this makes any sense...how do you reroute power from the shields to the warp core? Some ships like the Defiant routed warp power directly through the shields or phasers to increase the pulse bank and make recharging easier(while actually increasing efficiency) but nothing can actually be rerouted to the warp core...even though, and I'm not sure how many ships have it, but in like Star Trek: Final Unity(PC Game) it's revealed that the Enterprise's impulse drive is powered by Fusion reactors.

Among them is the counterintuitive idea that genes are at the mercy of experience – that what we do in our lives affects which genes are switched on and off.

So, far from genes being the cause of how we act, the new understanding sees them as just as much a consequence of how we act. Determined to be different: what we do changes the wiring of our genes
