    Select the Ursa Major campaign and load up level 3. Wormhole Outpost. Shoot the presents at the top and with little luck you should get a metal & beam gem (if not just restart). Put them both into your shield (you will need to have the upgrade for this), and once you've entered the warp-drive mode order your A.I. partner to take control of the shield and do nothing (moving the warp-drive out of harms way might help at most) and you should unlock this within a few seconds.

    To obtain the Overprotective Achievement in Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime you will need to unlock the ability to place two gems in the shield station. To do that simply collect as many lost friends as you can in each level to unlock it early on. Once you've done that you'll need to place a beam gem and metal gem into the shield station. The metal beam shield will absorb shots which adds a cell to the shield and you must have 20 cells on the shield at once to unlock the achievement. The trick is finding an area where the enemies won't run into them and keep moving the shield around in order avoid damage but to also catch projectiles. Try to have enemies on all sides preferable land based ones that won't run into your shield. Also you'll need to have enough so they can shoot it quick enough to build it up before they eventually disappear. Easier said than done but hopefully the video will give you some help.

    qManballinAnother way I found is to sit in front of a security/sentry gun. The shots stack and obviously it'll never run out of ammo. In fact, I did it with the AI controlling the shield and it popped.

    If this method is too cheap for you, you can also try to find those triangle bad guys in the 4th campaign. There's plenty of the green shots they do and you can try to gather them all that way.

    Here's an easy way to do it! I was trying to do it Scrtch's way -- I added a Beam Gem and a Metal Gem to my shield, and hovered near a land enemy that was shooting up at me. However, on the other side of me was a "trip-line shooter" (I don't know what they're called, but they're the ones that shoot constantly if you break their beam of light). Its shots stacked one after the other and I got to 20 in just a few seconds. Success!
