Hello.

First i want to say i love the game!

So the game has double sided shield tokens. So when I research Multi-polar Grid (MPG) Shields, can i flip over the basic Electromagnetic Shield to get MPG shield when i buy it assuming that i have EM shield allready on the ships? Also those it work for the fusion drives?

Thank you

Glad to hear that you love the game! It is my favorite game!

No, you cannot simply flip over the shields that way.

The technologies are the knowledge necessary to acquire such upgrades, but you still need to buy the upgrades for your ships. You can continue to use the old shields or drives, but you need to purchase upgraded shields or drives in order to improve them, once you have acquired the better technologies via research.

Also, did you know that another expansion will be coming out in 2017?

Yeah i know you have to buy tehnology first, but after that can i buy the better shield and flip the old one that is on the ship, since they are dubble sided

I see what you are saying. Yes, you can certainly flip the token when using the Buy Upgrades action. On the other hand, if you have room for the weaker shield you can certainly keep that one around as well.

Keeping old shields is definitely advantageous. Since you can freely move upgrades around, just beef up your ships even more.

The only reason to flip them is that you ran out of space on your ships (in which case I might suggest your upgrade and tech strategy was not optimal, and you wasted resources).
