color coded enemy shield strength
 
I think this is the best thing i've seen so far besides the way the episodes are shown

please make this active as soon as possible on holodeck, especially on borg cubes

thanks

Yep agree with you on that one!

Personally i dislike it. The bright primary colors make it look too cartoonish. Fits better with the champs aesthetic better than it does with STO.
I didn't mind the pale blue, as it fits with the shields, although I wished there was a way to get rid of them completely.

There is... it's called something like directional Shield display or so in the General Options Tab...

I didn't think much of it until I actually played a few missions. Now I wonder how I lived without it. Might be nice to tone the yellow/red down to make it less cartoony, but otherwise I'm loving it.

There is a way to eliminate the shield rings completely. On the "Basic" tab of your Options menu, look to the option for "Enable Directional Shield FX."

It's a nice addition.

The color changes are something different and definitely help in the midst of a serious battle. Seeing red segments gives you a much better idea of where the enemy stands and who to go after first. Very nice innovation Devs!
