Cruisers are too slow to "shield" things in that sense on a 3D map. We also have the issue that - generally - there's no collision detection on things outside of their intended targets.

Speaking of the shield aspect though, it's one of the things I mentioned in an older one of these threads. Eng can drop out a Cover Shield on the ground... in Space though - it's a C-Store item. Definitely think that should have been an Eng innate or an Eng Space BOFF ability.
