Not trying to de-rail your thread here OP, but I had a feeling something like this was gonna happen:

That was focused on the shield power aspect, and was before we learnt some more of what we have now, but it's there.

Won't it be fun when people really do start hitting higher tier Nukara rep and getting gear from that, including the Nukara space sets. The console gives a +5, then the engine (or one of the pieces) gets a flat bonus and then an extra efficiency bonus on top of that all for shields (similar to the Jem'hader set, one of it's pieces gives a bonus to weapon power).

Min-max it right, and you could easily see max weapons, nearly-max or max shields, and higher constant engines or aux.

To add a similar point to what Maicake said:

Remember, engineers are supposed to be some kind of master's of power by being able to get more power than the others, which seems to be totally pointless considering that everyone can get heaps of power anyways.

Why are all of STO's EPs named 'Steve'?
