This page specifically refers to ship-grade shield systems. If you're looking for information on Planetary Shield systems, please refer to the Planet Shields section.
In Galaxy Legion, Shields act as a second layer of health on top of the hull. While shield generators take up more space than hull modules and provide fewer hit points (Making them less space-efficient), shields automatically recharge over time (2% of total unbuffed shield per 'tick') when they take damage. Shield recharge modules can also reduce the recharge time (thereby increasing the repair rate), making shields even more effective during prolonged combat.
They can also have a slight psychological effect against attackers, as players are more likely to stop attacking you if they keep damaging your shields, rather than your Hull. Five standard Shield modules can be installed at one time. Additional special Shield modules can also be discovered or salvaged.
Researchable Shield Systems
The following Shield modules are unlocked by conducting research into Shield systems. They automatically become available to build once the prerequisite technology has been researched. You can fit up to 5 of these modules at once.
The current maximum Shields that can be obtained purely from researchable equipment (ignoring any artifact, Race or Profession bonuses) is from 5 Heavy Obviator Shields, which give 2795 Shields for 260 decks and take a total upkeep of 325,000,000 (325 million) credits per day.

1 The Cyclobeam Charger is listed under weapons on the ship tab, not shields.
2 The Omni-Field Regulator will be displayed in the devices section of your ship stats, not in the shields section. It's listed here because it provides more shields than scanning.
3 The Q-Pedd Ansible, Titancore Reactor and both types of XRP Pack are listed in the "Energy" tab on your ship. They are listed here because they provide at least as much shield as energy (in the case of the Ansible and Reactor, MUCH more). For a description of the Activated Ability of the Q-Pedd Ansible, see the note under its entry in Reactors
4 This is no longer available as the Sarkonis NPC now drops the Sarkonis Barrier II.
Discoverable or Salvageable Shield Recharge Systems
These Shield systems specifically improve the rate at which your existing shield systems recharge (Repair) by reducing the amount of time between "ticks" by several seconds per module. They can be found by completing missions or defeating certain NPC's in combat.
