Mass shielding was a protection against space debris (encountered at speeds up to 0.5c). It served as a defensive system that happened to also work easily against missiles, making them useless in ship-to-ship combat.[1] When re-phased, it could also block attack by electron orbital randomizers.[2] In at least one design, jump drive engines were  put in the back of a ship, with mass shielding to the front.[3]
