Re: Star Ship Polaris

Combat vessels in this universe rely on a combination of electronic countermeasures, hull armor and point-defense weaponry to fend off most forms of attack. Energy shields along the lines of Star Trek or Star Wars simply don't exist.

They may have something similar to a navigational deflector for clearing away interstellar dust and debris ahead of the ship. It might be a powerful electromagnetic field or something more sophisticated like a gravitational beam that causes matter to "fall" out of the ship's path.
