If an away team encounters hostility, the general practice is to '''retreat'''. This is typically the most intelligent decision, since away team weapons are comparable to those of a modern police officer, and in most cases they would be insufficient against a large group of heavily armed locals. An orbiting starship may maintain a transporter lock on its away team, enabling it to beam the team away at the first hint of trouble. Any away mission involves risk, however, due to the many phenomena that can interfere with transporter function.
