Borg shield neutralizers
 
Is there a counter to that torpedo thing the Borg use on me to take down my shields?

I've tried reverse shield polarity, allocating more energy to shields, emergency power to shields, science team and reverse shield polarity.

No there isn't. - At least not a direct one.
The only thing you can do, to quickly restore your shields, is using "Reverse shield polarity"

Naaaa, reverse shield polarity is unusefull or near of it. The energy draining of the borg shield neutralizer is too extensive to recharge the shield with another ships shoots. The only "solution" is polarize hull, use auxiliary to hull, one skill of engineering team or science team and use the dampening field if you had... and wait and pray that you no have too many borg ships shooting you. Or if you are a escort, destroy to the enemy.

I think, regenerative shields should be "anti-borg" shield and maybe one of them with regx3 can "mitigate" the problem... If someone has use a regenerative shield with regx3 and wish say us if the shield is "usefull"... I have curiosity to that shield "performance" in combat.

An ally using extend shields or transfer shield strength can sometimes counter act the effects, but other than that there's really no counter to it, which is totally weak. I mean it's one of the most powerful borg attacks and there's no direct counter to it. Very weak.

i think,we should have multiphastic shielding,for our shields.may be a new type of shield,or a console to upgrade your shields.
at least partial effect vs borg weapons,maybe a 10% chance that ray of theres does nothing.
thn maybe my sci ship will last a bit longer than 10 seconds.

You can clear it with Hazzard Emmiters..at least on tribble.

Reverse Shield Polarity cannot be used to recover your shield fully, but it keeps them somewhat active - which helps against torpedoes. As long as you got shields, their damage should be significantly reduced. And since Borgs have the habit of using shield neutralizes, tractor beams and high yield plasma torpedoes, it's not a bad thing to have...

I just try a regenerative shield regX3 against borg cube (level 46) and my shield is depleted 7 seconds... (shield in energy defense mode) when you recharge shield, do you have 2 seconds with shield. if you use RSP, and you have too ships fire to you, your shield recharge it someone... but a few seconds later, t the shield is depleted again. if you transfer any energy to face the shield agains the enemy, that side "mantain"... at leas some more of time... if you balance the shield, ithe borg shield neutralizer drain too enegy of all sides and the shield gone.

Strange, my shields are always up when RSP is applied, at least the enemy facing section, but I have never promised something else.
I use Regeneratives[Cap][Reg]x2 together with 2 + 6 Shieldstrength Consoles, so that I get around 81 Shield energy.
Maybe shield resistance also helps agaisnt those tickers...
I'm in an assault cruiser btw...

I'm in an assault cruisier too, I have the same 2 +6 to energy shield generation, in attack mode, I have the same 81 on shield energy... but that borg cube with his shield neutralizer has take down the shield... maybe, the problem was the different level (+1)... to be fair, I will try on a borg cube with the same leven that mine.

A thing I have very clear, to have any chance, to have shield, is very necesary focus all energy in a single shield.

Just I try it, I will say it.
