In my experience 12.5k is average. I've had ships with way more or way less. But in a bortasq, your power doesn't come from your shield, it comes form your hull. Your armor resists should be way up there. That said, shields are needed, because they reduce incoming energy and projectile fire. If you're worried about your shields, get some doffs that decrease Tactical team recharge time. If you can get 3 very rare ones, you'll get a +30 bonus too attack patterns every time you activate it, and the shield distribution should be constant.

But for a bortasq, 12.5k is reasonable. If you really feel nervous, you'd probably have too get a different ship, a carrier most likely. I've gotten my catian carrier into 17k territory.
