Obtained in: Alliance Pilot >> Special Abilities I
Type: activated ability
Effect: Allows the pilot to temporarily circumvent the ship's normal power distribution parameters and redirect all power normally meant for recharging the ship's weapon capacitor into shields instead. The weapon capacitor will no longer recharge for the duration of the effect and may shut down completely. However, the command will increase shield power levels and shield recharge rates. A failure to run the command will shut down the starship down; and the greater the failure, the longer the downtime.
