Shield Mechanics

Basic Deflector and Shield Mechanics

(Class taught at Starfleet Academy)

Lession 1 — You will lose efficiency if you try to use the shields as a flat wall. They will break down at an increased rate. You want to redirect the damage away from the vessel. An example of this redirection would be to set the shields into a cone shape that covered the front of the vessel only. This is designed to angle the blast away as opposed to simply blocking the blast. [1]
