At the end of Voyager 'Flesh & Blood' the holograms are chasing the Hirogen on the planet surface with some sort of phaser rifles. There is a holo emitter on the planet surface, explaining why the holograms can exist there in the first place. I have two conflicting observations:
- The holograms walk through rocks, including their weapons.
- The holograms effectively shoot the Hirogen with the weapons.
Nr 1. suggests that the weapons are holographic too. Nr 2. suggests that the weapons are real, otherwise why would the holographic phaser burst hurt the Hirogen.
Nr 1 and Nr 2 can't be both true, so what's the deal here? Or is this again a 'safety protocols are turned off' situation?
