No, your flying around at Red Alert, Red Alert does not mean in combat but prepared for it, weapons are powered and Shields are up.
Yellow Alert is Shields up no power to weapons.
Green Alert which I've never seen mentioned in the TV shows would be standing down from Yellow. So *no* combat shields or weapons power.
As I said earlier the nature of the game is we are always at Red Alert or in Sector space when we are in our ships.
Edit: left out the word no.
