(Redirected from Standard Energy Shield)Jump to navigationJump to search
The most common form of shielding, energy shields form a force field around a starship capable of absorbing or reflecting the energy directed at it and destroying any particles that come across it. The shield constantly drains shipboard power resources to replenish itself millions of times in a second. The more the shield is hit, the more power it takes to neutralize the weapons fire. When the power generators can't take this anymore, the shield overloads and collapses, leaving the hull defenseless.
