Meteo's Shield Regeneration

Shield Regeneration begins at 2Xe, and gets +1 for each increase in Tech Level:

2Xe: 1
2Xs: 2
2Xl: 3
3X: 4
4Xe: 5
4Xs: 6
4Xl: 7
5X: 8
6Xe: 9
6Xs: 10
6Xl: 11
7X: 12
8Xe: 13
8Xs: 14
8Xl: 15
9X: 16

...Also toyed with the 7th Shield Idea, the one that can be asisgned to any facing, it's strength being:

* x *, the left asterisk being Size Class, SC 5 gets 4, SC 4 gets 6, SC 3 gets 8, SC 2 gets 12, SC 1 gets 16
the right asterisk being the Tech level, 2Xe being "1", each succeeding Tech Level is a +1.

Multiply the Size Class Number by the Tech Level Number to get the Shield #7 Facing, the TNG Galaxy Class getting 64.
