I've been watching through The Next Generation, and I've noticed that the word Metaphasic seems to come up alot, the Metaphasic Shield is the only example I can remember though. I was wondering what the word meant, but the definition on wiktionary is "the stage of mitosis and meiosis, that follows prophase and comes before anaphase, during which condensed chromosomes become aligned before being separated" I don't really understand that, and I'm particularly confused as to how it could relate to shield technology. I was wondering if anyone knows what the word means and whether it actually makes sense in some way? --Modred (talk). 21:22, April 9, 2014 (UTC)

It's never made entirely clear, but the Metaphasic shield article will lead you down a fun rabbit hole. -- sulfur (talk) 22:06, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
