Indeed. The Galaxy has a more than adequate shield strength considering the size of the vessel, and its ability to tank (obv because its a Cruiser) really is unmatched by any Escort.
However, I would like to see the slower cruisers, like the Galaxy, receive a slightly higher shield modifier to compensate its woeful base turning force.
