Tonight - the debate I thought of bringing up is an idea on Modular Shielding.    Essentially here is the shield idea in a nutshell:     Modular Shielding:   Essentially modular shielding would not use a singular shield generator, instead it will be using shield emitters that are placed on the surface of the hull to provide coverage.    An emitter can be overloaded by sustained fire on that emitter grid. Having a reserve shield emitter grid as a backup would be critical especially for l
