shield power means nothing, specially with the crazy sci skills out their that strip you faster then a frat boy to a pledge.... and then pretend he's not into it. Weirdo.

So what you shouldn't worry so much about is the thickness of shields so much as the ability cycle and buff them. All the shield facings (Unless you are surrounded then you're S.O.L) feed the facing that's being assaulted. so basically one shield facing with TT or human intervention makes it go from 6k to 6x4 meaning would be 24K to the accosted facing so in the face of those overwhelming numbers the shield doesn't really matter, the skills and equipment of the captain comes into prospective then so a Patrol Escort can have more tankability then a carrier in the hands of a able captain.
