So... Shield Projectors?
Seriously though, I wouldn't be totally surprised if we eventually see shield modules or drone constellations that produce smaller areas of shielding for large craft.
Not exactly just nodes on the hull that would generate a field over a area so large set at a specific point so that it would overlap with another shield etc etc. I called it a projector to make it easier to understand the concept I should have used emitter instead, because that is not what I am thinking about at all.
