famous Picard quote "Data, things are only impossible until they're not!"
If we go by that, energy shields in general are impossible so far.
the man's got a point. SCRAP THE MOD!
what if we dont want hull hugging shields? hope we get an option to choose
you dont get a choice, and its only on neutral ships.
It would actually be awesome to have a sort of mini-mod add-on that would make all ships have HH Shields. In my opinion, it seems more realistic and Star Trek-y.
It's relatively easy to do, but we're trying to stay on cannon (in so far as possible) with ships you regularly see. Most of those ships shown on the tv show(S) have the traditional spherical shield. You'll see them regularly though on some ships. the militia vessels and probably pirates will have HH shields.
didn't the enterprise E from nemesis have hugging shields as well?
No, he didn't.
That is a pretty good point. Could be a newer innovation applied to the Sovereign class.
Or they changed everything we saw before. In First Contact, Enterprise didn't have HH shields, and yet Nemesis has shown that he had. Questions, everyone?
bit late but also the viewscreen changed from holographic to normal. The changes were due to budgets (first contact could afford holographic screen) and what looks cooler (hull shields)
Perhaps HH shields ARE cool(yes, I like them better too), but if they made them oval before, then they should stay oval after. As for viewscreen, well, I do not care much about that part. If they could see normally, that's fine by me.
HH Shields are cooler than spherical shields, shame only neutrals get them.
Perhaps, but as technophobeus said, they are trying to be as close to cannon as possible. Star Wars ships have HH shields, and in many, many episodes you can see that Star Trek have oval or spherical shields.
I know, I was just saying that I think HH shields are cooler, not saying they shouldn't be cannon.
Yes, I personally too like HH shields because it's closer to normal world science or whatever than oval ones.
Didn't the Enterprise-E have HHS? Or is my memory of Insurrection that bad.

Neutral ships will now be using hull hugging shields.
