I wish it was a glitch, unfortuntely it isn't. If it was a glitch, just that single shield would be glitchy, but I checked multiple shields ranging from really crappy Ensign one all the way through to the new Purple Ones from the Borg daily, on a tactical ship the shield values are all really low now, right now could almost spit at the shields and it'll bring them down...

I know its not a glitch, I was helping out a fleet guildie earlier today against -30 ships and they was damaging my shields like crazy, I'm glad I had my Ablative Armor installed.

Also it could've been an attempt at Cryptics idea of balancing that went horribly wrong. I can't really say since I only have played with my Tac flying Cruiser to captain 3 so far and thus have no insight to how things have changed for other classes.
From what information my guildies have given me, I'm pretty sure its a ship class nerf only.
