"It is protected by an energy shield which is generated from the nearby forest moon of Endor. The shield must be deactivated if any attack is to be attempted."
Admiral Gial Ackbar, regarding the assault on the second Death Star[src]

Rebel troopers activate a shield generator to protect themselves from AT-ST fire.

A deflector shield generator, or simply called a shield generator[1] or a shield projector,[2] was a device which was used to create a deflector shield, such as a ray shield.[1] Deflector shield generators were used to create protective shields for starships, vehicles, personnel, and droids.[source?]

The Galactic Empire based a SLD-26 planetary shield generator on the forest moon of Endor.[3] The shield provided protection for the Empire's powerful DS-2 Death Star II Mobile Battle Station superweapon and, so long as it was active, made the weapon invulnerable to the attacks of the Rebel Alliance forces.[1]
