Shields

Stops your ship from going boom.

Level I

    • The basic entry in Earth Industries' series of popular shield generators.
    • NAMI's Cyclotron deflectors absorb a lot of damage, but take more time to regenerate.
    • Better than a class I at deflecting laser energy; worse at deflecting anything else.

Level II

    • While not powerful enough to protect against military-grade weapons, the class II deflector provides added defense for freelancers and independent merchantships.
    • This device ionizes a ship's hull, repelling kinetic and blast damage. The ionization field weakens as the ship's armor is damaged.

Level III

    • A quantum magnetic field strongly deflects damage from kinetic and blast weapons. It is less effective against laser and particle beam attacks.
    • Developed by the innovative Solon Industries, this shield generator absorbs almost all laser energy. A ship equipped with these shields cannot fire any laser weapons.
    • Stronger than a class III deflector using less than half the power.

Level IV

    • The class III deflector is an integrated system that protects a ship against most forms of damage.
    • The R1 deflector was developed a few decades ago to protect Fleet ships against the powerful lightning cannons of the Ares Orthodoxy.
    • This quasi-matter generator protects a starship against blast energy.
    • The most powerful shield generator in NAMI's Cyclotron series.

Level V

    • The shield generators sold by Kabuto Defense are among the most powerful and advanced. The Yoroi line of shields ranges from this inexpensive commercial model to more powerful military versions
    • Each model of the Nephren series is tuned for a different kind of damage. The P25 is designed to defend against particle and ion damage.
    • High manufacturing costs and poor sales doomed it in the market, but many prefer this vintage deflector over modern imitators.
    • This generator uses an array of superconducting coils. Individual coils must be replaced to restore the field after damage is taken.

Level VI

    • The Luminous AI has developed these shield generators for its drones. They are designed to be resistant to particle-beam energy.
    • The Luminous AI has developed these shield generators for its drones. They are designed to be resistant to thermonuclear energy.
    • The Luminous AI has developed these shield generators for its drones. They are designed to be resistant to blast energy.
    • The Luminous AI has developed these shield generators for its drones. They are designed to be resistant to ion energy.
    • The Ares Cydonian shield generator is a slightly inferior clone of the YoroiS500.
    • Mammoth deflector shields can absorb immense amounts of damage, but their regeneration rate is lower than competitors.
    • The Yoroi S500 is the most powerful shield generator available for non-military customers of the Kabuto Defense corporation.
    • The Invincible-class deflector is extremely powerful. Its one flaw is that it disables all other ship systems when it collapses.
    • This is an updated version of the R1 deflector, designed to resist the Ares Orthodoxy's lightning cannons.
    • This is a larger and more powerful version of the quasi-matter deflector.
    • When used in concert with Omsk armor segments, this deflector increases in strength up to 200 hit points.

Level VII

    • Used by the Sung Dragon slavers, these shields are a much enhanced version of the Yoroi S500.
    • A Trenton field generator degrades the intensity of any form of energy. Unlike other shield generators, however, some energy inevitably leaks through.
    • This is a more powerful version of the Cydonian shield generator.
    • The 50MW Mammoth deflector is designed for military ships. Like other Mammoth designs, it has high hit points and a low regeneration rate.
    • Each model of the Nephren series is tuned for a different kind of damage. The B700 is designed to defend against blast and thermonuclear damage.
    • This is the military version of the S500 shield generator created by the Kabuto Defense corporation.
    • Commonwealth Fleet labs created this variant of the R5 for its new Britannia-class gunships.

Level VIII

    • The most powerful version of the R-series deflectors is used on Commonwealth Fleet capital ships.
    • Plasma shield generators are used on most military ships. Plasma shield generators cannot be used on civilian ships without a special military ID.
    • This shield generator reflects all ion energy.
    • The Taikon-10 deflector is optimized to defend against thermonuclear attacks.
    • This is the most powerful deflector in the Mammoth series.
    • When used in concert with Omsk armor segments, this deflector increases in strength up to 400 hit points.

Level IX

    • This byzantine alien device generates a particle shield that absorbs most energy weapons.
    • The Nephren X1 is an experimental model that defends against ion and positron damage.
    • This alien shield generator has controls to adjust its strength.
    • The most advanced shield generator in the Ares Orthodoxy, the Kaidun generator is used by the Ares dreadnought.

Level X

    • The Lazarus is an experimental shield generator. It has a phenomenal generation rate, but it consumes almost prohibitive amounts of power.
    • The Taikon-200 deflector is optimized to defend against thermonuclear attacks.

Level XIII

    • This alien device is designed to defend the giant commandships of the Iocrym.
