Deflector Shields:

Type: Symmetrical oscillating subspace graviton field. Adaptive 

This type of shield is similar to those of most other starships. Other than incorporating the now mandatory nutational shift in frequency, the shields alter their graviton polarity to better deal with more powerful weapons and sophisticated weaponry (including Dominion, Breen, and Borg systems).

Output: 14 shield grids generating 157.35 MW, Total shield strength: 2,202.09 MW

Typical shield configuration: 8 emitters with an output of 1,258.8 MW. The power for the shields is taken directly from the warp engines and impulse fusion generators. If desired, the shields can be augmented by power from the impulse power plants (AuxiliaryPower). The shields can protect against approximately 42% of the total EM spectrum (whereas a Galaxy class Starship's shields can only protect against about 23%), made possible by the multi-phase graviton polarity flux technology incorporated into the shields.

Range: The shields, when raised, maintain an average range of 30 meters away from the hull.

Primary purpose: Defense from hazardous radiation and space-borne particulates.

Secondary purpose: Defense from enemy threat forces
