Anyone else noticed that Dengar's preview had 7 shield tokens despite him and his ship only having 4?

Now I understand these are minor previews and there could still be a lot of balancing and numbers alteration. However it is always interesting to ponder.

I believe I heard the idea that two of the partly hidden cards are called "Overcharged Agromech" (a salvaged astromech icon just available to Scum) allows a ship to temporarily increase a ship's shields, possibly at a cost in stress (why does he need 5 stress tokens after all). It is non-unique and may be available to Scum Y-wings as well.

It wouldn't surprise me if the Gonk Droid had something to do with shields as well.

The gonk droid has basically the best name ever.

Now, if they want to do something insane, they need to reference the Cult of the Power Droids.

Since it is a large based ship, it should come with a scenario.

Could be that the shields have something to do with the scenario.
