Only activate for the first person to use it. Disables it for everyone else until you move farther off.

And doesn't extending the shields also weaken them? Yes it offers some protection but not as much as if they were at their normal range.

Sounds way to OP...especially in pvp, the 5k range will hurt energy weapons plus having 50% uptime. (Less with MACO set and other cooldowns)

I love the idea, it would give cruisers a real mother ship feel.

Any ships inside should retain their shields thus essentially doubling up while they recover.

And it is essentially a space based version of force field dome.

This would also be extremely valuable against a swarm of fighters.

So it would be useful as a solo ability it should also push away things like Plasma Torpedoes.

But having a whole squad in close could be difficult to coordinate so it should also have like a formation function, anyone who wants in or needs to stay in should be able to click F to fall in, while their shields recharge.

And yes extending shields always has the drawback of weakening the protection. So shaving off 25% shield strength is useful. Or up the bleedthrough for the ship using the ability.

I mean it should be like final level like a Vice Admiral Engineer ability. Hell I'd prefer that to Engineering Fleet I think. Or maybe make it the the full Admiral ability. That'd be boss, I sign for this.

And if more than one person uses it then it should just end up with two bubbles, better for teams to coordinate and stagger the timing and cool down. Now that could be utterly broken. But imminently useful.
Yes I support This

This is the problem with this idea. You are essentially asking for one power to do what three other powers do. It would be like a Science Officer asking for a Gravity Well that messes with any ship in the well's power (Tyken's Rift) and shuts down their systems (Viral Matrix).

I think it is asking too much.

Exactly...especially asking for a cooldown of 60 seconds with a uptime of 30...something like that if it were done would need to be a special console with a cooldown of at least 5 minutes...maybe more.
