Shield generators were devices capable of creating deflector shields to protect a starship, starbase, or ground installation.
The primary component of a deflector shield generator on Federation starships was the phaton, a mechanism invented by Professor Osric Whipple prior to 2233. (TOS comic: "Destination Annihilation", TOS movie & novelization: Star Trek)
In 2373, Jem'Hadar soldiers erected shield generators around the supply depot they established on Illarh. Gilaad Ben Zoma gathered intelligence about the generators and Starfleet was able to disable them. (STA short story: "What Dreams May Come")
