Once we develop the technology of manned, long-term space travel (such as star trek, for example), how would our spaceships hulls and housing be protected from things such as solar wind, other "energy debris", and deterioration?

The Earth is protected by its magnetic field, would our ships need their own magnetic field? Would it need any protection at all?
