Advanced anti-borg tactics (AABT)- my version

My reply will focus on how to fight the borg, in space. If you are low levelled, your options are limited when battling the borg, and actually being effective, my advice for anyone lvl 30 and below? avoid the borg unless team with a lvl 30+ that actually knows what they are doing.
Now for those low levels that want to fight the borg when they get stronger, and for some of those higher levelled that maybe aren't sure HOW to fight the borg, here comes my advice.
1. Invest in anti-borg specific ship equipment.
I am a lvl 44 tactical officer, and i can battle the borg quite effectively in either my defiant class tactical escort, or my mirror universe advanced escort, due to my equipment sets, and my boff abilities.
2. what equipment? i hear you asking me, no worries. here goes!.
weapon types? any damage type works against the borg, for tactical/science, i recommend a good mix of dual cannons, 1 forwards torpedo launcher, and however many turrets you can fit aft wise. all of which should be maxed with either (dmg) x3 or (acc) x3.
choose equipment that will assist you in resisting energy/shield drains., a neutrino deflector array works nicely, along with some power insulators. then invest in some good hull armor for your engineering slots. then invest into some damage increasing tactical console's to help boost your dps quickly.
ship shields should be that of the covariant variety, with a (pla) boost. since borg do primarily plasma damage, it is always nice to have some 20% plasma resistance to keep you alive a little longer. invest some skill points into power insulators and boosting dps and shield/hull strength and your just about there
crank all power between weapons/shields, and have a few good skills like hazard emitters 2, reverse shield polarity, tactical tea m1+2, brace for impact, and cannon radpi fire or scatter shot, and your practically killing borg without ever losing your shields at all.
