In the far future of my Blood in the Stars setting, material sciences have advanced substantially allowing for the creation of highly durable battle armor. This is aptly demonstrated by the standard issue United Earth Fleet 'Myrmidon' class helmet above, having received some 'intensive testing' after a close range firefight. Both the ballistic glass and hard plate is more than capable of stopping centerfire rifle rounds, and prevent the worst of the blunt force trauma. You can see both direct impacts, as well as spalling damage from deflections.
