The Absolute Defense system creates red hexagonal shields that overlap each other to form a defensive grid. This shield system is operated through a pair of keyboard controls, setting up effective defensive patterns based on the information from the Druid System, which plots the trajectories of incoming projectiles.
The Absolute Defense system has four known weakness.
- The Absolute Defense system must be turned off for weapons systems to be used.
- A high intellect is required to calculate the optimal positioning of the shields.
- Continual pressure from high-yield weaponry (like continuous point-blank exposure to the Mordred's Stark Hadron Cannon) will severely deplete energy reserves and drastically decrease the strength of the Absolute Defense System's shielding.
- An attack of high enough force over a small area (as shown by a salvaged half of the Excalibur) will overwhelm the shielding at the point of contact, sapping the efficiency and effectiveness of the shield, which will lead to a structural collapse of the shield.
