IIRC, the Queen Mantha's 'anti-beam deflector' is not specifically defined
to be an I-field anywhere, and it seems to be limited to the huge
shoulder-binders. I always thought it was some kind of special coating or
something, but maybe it is after all a limited I-field of some kind.

Besides, wasn't the Queen Mantha basically powered down by the time Roux put
in the final shot?
