I am looking at the new tech here (being a new Eclipse player) and I am confused about this tech. It makes me feel like I am missing something.

The base game already has a phase cloak which gives -2 to enemy die rolls. What is the point of Distortion Shield which apparently does the same thing? Does the phase cloak not work on missiles or something?

Despite your hope, there is not even any inherent symbolism; gravity is simply a coincidence.

See this thread. tl;dr: distortion field applies to all ships and doesn't take a slot in any ship and thus doesn't need to be "upgraded" and it stacks with the base game shield techs.

Oh! Cool okay I thought it was an upgrade, but it is just a research. Like Neutron Bombs.
