Inhako is thinking algebraically. Where two negatives produce a positive. in this case the two different shields stacked back to back would negate each other. *engage sarcasm; FULL POWER!* That is why we would have to have triple shielding systems. Yeah, yeah that's the ticket.

Who cares about triple shielding if you can have plot armor.


Edit: Now I really want to have plot armor......Kirk flavor.

Shields stacking? Most likely possible if each succesive layer of shielding past the first has the neccassary freuquency to pass through the other forcefields. It would be much like an Onion in effect but due to the power needed to project so mnay FFs plus the needed extra emitters the layering of shields would just be a similiar to ablative shielding in a fashion adding only a marginal bonus to defense and one that would go away over time or as power drain increased on the system in question.

Very true.

But as I am someone that plays both faction,it would not be in my best interest to let one faction have an unfair advantage over the other.
