The Mimir is definitely tricky in some respects. That being said, the Lock Drive is not really intended to be analogous to the Plasma Jets -- if anything its closest cousin in the vanilla mobility systems would be the Burn Drive. It also has some real strengths that neither of those drive systems possess; in particular it is extremely fast, much faster than most comparable systems, which gives you opportunities to jump in if you see a good opportunity to pounce, or to rapidly retreat.

I probably won't give the ship the ability to keep it's shields up (for a couple reasons, for one it might make it a little too good as a tool for retreat, but also it would make it much easier to crash into things and could easily leave you overloaded in an especially vulnerable position.) That being said, I may look into increasing the damage mitigation the system provides while it's up, particularly when colliding.
