To keep your ship from exploding into a million pieces of debris, there are a few items necessary for ship defense. The primary items are ship armor and shields. The more armor you have, the more damage you can take. Shields reduce damage taken by enemy fire. Shields do recharge, but only if you’re NOT firing your blasters. If your shields are down and you’re taking a beating, it’s wise to lay off the constant firing so that they can replenish.
