Extending shields around an ally ship so they can recover
How about letting us extend our shields around an ally ship and if they accept, they go into a kind of auto follow mode where they get moved where we move (so they stay within our shields). It would let an ally get some recovery time, while our (presumably healthier ship) can take the damage for both of us. Of course there'd need to be a weakened shield effect for us since we are extending the range of our shields. When the ally is ready to disengage from our shield they just move away as normal?
