i wonder how much it depends on the ship you fly and your tactics in combat.

I prefer high regen shields. I fly escorts, and my tactics generally involve swooping in hard and fast, killing as many mobs as i can before flying off, looping around, and coming back for another pass.

With low cap shields, major alpha strikes can be a problem. But that's why i have a multitude of protective abilities. But since headstart, i've died only once, and that was in a group action where i wasn't paying attention. I'm now a captain, and my survivability is extremely high in PvE.

Perhaps it's different in PvP. I can't speak to that.
