I'm coming to the opinion that ships should have more shields on the right hand side than on the left as you always eject out the RHS of the ship.
Too often I've ended up with an enemy bearing down on me with a kill shot from my right and been unable to eject as I would eject into the path of the (about to be fired) missiles.
I conclude that if you have more shields on the RHS you can survive not ejecting in this position, whereas if you have fewer on the left you can afford to eject in the knowledge that your corpse will block the missiles from getting to your escape pod.
To this end my Frog series of ships now have more shields on the RHS than on the left.
Command a squadron of spaceships
