Warships are typically protected by two layers of energy shields, in addition to the standar armor coating their hulls. The interior shield is always active, and repels most weaker laser attacks, while the exterior shield is can only be activated for brief periods of time, and must "cool down" before being used again. These exterior shields are used to block more powerful laser attacks.

It is unknown whether or not energy shields defend only against energy weapons, or if they can also be used to defend ships from the explosive effects of nuclear fusion missiles.
