I am the same when trading or exploring. No use for shields Thankfully I only lost 400k at the Diso CG so far because I was admiring the station a little too much Think when I upgrade to Type-7 I'll grab some shields too.
Being serious for a moment (it is hard for me but I will try ) Had I not been rushing as dinner was almost ready and I just wanted to get 'one more trade in' I wouldn't have crashed. It was my fault totally and I hit with such force shields may not have helped much!
