Real World[]

The Thermians have replicated the technology from the show, keeping one for every member of the crew on the Protector II. Neru gave Tommy Webber one of these devices because his character Laredo used one on the show.


A prop replica of device was made and sold.


  • It is reffered to as a Valence Shield in the novelization.
  • The scene in which Tommy Webber receives the shield does not appear in the film, but the prop is used by him no less.
  • Most information regarding this object is derived from the empty prop box used in the convention scene.
