Solution...replace batteries at the warning.
You'd think an old dummy like me would know better...
That's the problem, Ron, there are so many people in this crazy modern world that don't know Star Trek quotes by heart!

To add a quote pertinant to this situation: "RISK is PART of the business. . . That's, why. . . we're out here. Thats, why. . . we're ABOARD her."
To put it more succinctly though, this "risk" is totally avoidable by TESTING equipment, repeatly, before you shoot. Don't make any assumptions about the functionality of anything.
Fortunately, most all of the audience knew the quote as they were Trekkers. The mixed reaction came from their either laughing or their chagrin at realizing that the problem was there in front of their eyes. Overdesign and control software bugs.
