Over-expenditures of power could damage the vital lithium crystals at the hearts of these circuits, as happened to the USS Enterprise in 2266 when chasing a class-J starship into an asteroid belt. Forced to extend her shields around the vessel to protect it from asteroid collisions, the Enterprise burned out three of four lithium crystals, forcing the crew to supplement with battery power. The fourth crystal subsequently failed, overstressed from handling all of the ship's power. (TOS: "Mudd's Women")
