How about a "real" shield...something that attempts to stop everything
that hits
the ship?  Several scifi settings have these types of shields (Classic
Star Trek
for example), but FT doesn't have anything like this.

A few ways to handle it:
A.  Make it an "optional" or "gener" device. (like the wave guns, cloak,
Ie: not in the offical fleets/setting.)
B. Make it bigger/costly.
C. Give it to somebody that the known races hasn't encountered yet...

Having weapons that can go through shields and/or armor makes FT seem
too much
like Starfire...and I stopped playing that game when I discovered the
"unfixable" flaw.
