The lifeforms could not open up the fissures in an area protected by shields, but could focus their efforts on weakening shields by opening a fissure within one meter of the shield perimeter. The lifeforms used this tactic when attacking Voyager and the USS Equinox, causing the shields to weaken by 0.3 percent every time a fissure opened. Working together, the two Starfleet crews devised a latticework of multiphasic force fields throughout both ships, which had the capability of denying the lifeforms the ability to open a fissure with which to return to their own realm. The aliens eventually ceased their attacks on the Equinox. (VOY: "Equinox", "Equinox, Part II")
