I don't see how stupid it is.
You usually only start with 1 layer of shield and if it catches you early before you get two layers, then you're screwed aren't you? Sure it has no shields as well and probably in an asteroid field but come on, it was dodging rocks just fine until it went into combat.
Then again, it's probably a proper use of the word "retard" as it doesn't know any better. It was just born that way and slow on the uptake that maybe it shouldn't fight in an asteroid field.
The Beam Master is truly stupid because there's only 3 or 4 ships that start with no shields and he'll still make appearances in Sectors 2 and 3 (with an even bigger beam drone!)
