If we are to pass through the central plane of the galaxy then we will be passing through areas of higher density plasma. If we pass through one of the star forming arms, then the plasma density would be even higher, and the electrical activity much more energetic. This image would indicate we may pass through the plane in a less plasma dense gap between the spiral arms:

I'm still planning on building a Faraday cage for 2012!

So, how many seats you gonna' have in there? Bucket or otherwise... Taking reservations in advance?
Is it compatible with FoilHat(TM) technology?

The Electromagnetic Bomb - a Weapon of Electrical Mass Destruction
High Power Electromagnetic Pulse generation techniques and High Power Microwave technology have matured to the point where practical E-bombs (Electromagnetic bombs) are becoming technically feasible, with new applications in both Strategic and Tactical Information Warfare. The development of conventional E-bomb devices allows their use in non-nuclear confrontations. This paper discusses aspects of the technology base, weapon delivery techniques and proposes a doctrinal foundation for the use of such devices in warhead and bomb applications.
The article at the above link goes into great detail on how to make the EMP bomb, not that I recommend building one. Just that one can gain an understanding of mechanical generation of high powered short duration plasma pulses. Seems to me the subject fits right in with CMEs and such.
