Has anyone play-tested Plasma Shields for Phalon?
Uses existing Plasma launchers but only does 1 point
of damage per class if a ship, fighter, or missile run
into/through it. Has the same range and area of effect
as normal plasma launched through the plasma
However, it will also blocks shots that trace line of 
sight (LOS) through it (prevents FCS from locking 
onto the Phalon ship). The Plasma Shield acts as if it 
has a number of hull boxes equal to its class. 
It is not subject to PDS fire. But is vulnerable to fighter
and normal weapons fire. Each Plasma Shield must
be targeted separately.
