sif? you mean deflectors?
na, you wont get rust in space unsless you hit the ship with some oxidising corrosive from the outside or something eating out from the inside,
but that doesnt mean you wont get plasma corrosion, and even with the deflectors & navigation shields that assumes they are in a good enough state to be working properly.
which wont be the case if you just had your shields battered in by an attacker. (as much as i hate to reference voy: year of hell)
especially if you are talking about combat in an asteroid field, which is common enough ingame.
Figure out and address the players path of least resistance to reward. this one thing is THE consistent factor undermining all your efforts. be that crafting, raids or starbase projects.
