Deflector Shield is a shield technology for the starship.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Deflector Shield is the standard means of protecting a starship against enemy fire (no collision damage from space objects like asteroids or space stations). It will prevent enemy shots from making contact with the ship, but will regenerate slowly while not fully charged, necessitating manual recharge with Sodium, Sodium Nitrate or Pyrite for meaningful durability extension in combat. If not recharged and permitted to deplete, the shield will drop, leaving the starship vulnerable to critical damage.
