Void shields only interfere with NON-DAMAGING psychic attacks. They don't
interfere with warp-based missles like the Vortex & Warp missles, nor do they
interfere with psychic attacks that cause damage like Weirdboy lightning bolts
or Warp waves (except in the fact that the shield will stop one.) What they
do interfere with are things like Psychic lock and Eldritch storm that don't
actually cause damage or have a physical form.

Check out Allen's Q&As at
as I'm pretty sure that all this is made clear there! If it's not, ask
Allen a Q about it; maybe we'll get some answers eventually.
