The Reman Shield has unique texture graphics that actually require overwriting hull graphics to properly render. The JH Shield doesn't -- therefore, it has no compelling reason to suppress existing hull graphics. As a result, Cryptic has three options:
1) Give the JH Shield unique graphics that suppress existing hull graphics
2) Give the JH Shield no graphics
3) Give the JH shield hybrid graphics that add onto the existing hull, like Borg Shields.
What happens when you put the JH Shield on another non-JH ship? Do the hull customizations disappear, or do they stay in place?
