"Sir, we just lost the main rear deflector shield. One more direct hit on the back quarter and we're done for!"
―C-3PO, to Han Solo[src]

Deflector shields, or simply called shields, were protective energy fields that could protect starships,[1] battle stations,[2] ground-based structures,[3] and even armies from enemy assault. The Confederacy of Independent Systems used a shield around its droid forces during the Battle of Christophsis, preventing the Grand Army of the Republic from attacking until the shield generator was destroyed.[4] The Millennium Falcon, a light freighter, also had a deflector shield,[1] while the Death Star II had a deflector shield powered by a deflector dish on the forest moon of Endor.[2] A special type of shield was a ray shield. Some shields were one-way shields that only allowed a person to come in through the shield, but prevented passage back out through the shield.[5]
