Emergency bulkheads were barriers which could be engaged to contain areas on a starship which had suffered heavy damage and had decompressed. This had the effect of isolating the decompressed area from the rest of the ship. (TNG: "Disaster")
Before the regular use of force fields on Starfleet vessels to contain hull breaches, emergency bulkheads were standard. Enterprise NX-01 was equipped with emergency bulkheads, which were used extensively during their mission whenever a hull breach occurred. (ENT: "Minefield", "Anomaly", "Rajiin", "Stratagem", "Damage") Emergency bulkheads were also aboard Vulcan ships, such as the D'Kyr-type combat cruiser Seleya. (ENT: "Impulse")
