The Advanced Shielding System was a ship upgrade that could be purchased from Slim Cognito's Ship Shack in Going Commando. It upgraded the Star Explorer's shields, doubling its effectiveness by adding an extra bar of health. This increased the number of hits it could take before the shield deactivates. This upgrade would unlock the Ultra-Charge Shielding System upgrade after purchase. It cost 20 Raritanium.
