Had the same reaction to Emergency Power to Shields in Beta. I'll have to try this one.

For ground combat, I was pleasantly surprised by the shield generators. I'd expected disappointment because I've seen a lot of negative posts on it, but my original BO engineer had it so I figured I'd give it a shot. It's not only a decent buff but an aggro magnet. Even if it only lasts for 15 seconds or so because the mobs light it up like a Christmas tree, it gives you time to pick off enough targets to really change the dynamics of a fight, while regenerating your shields after the alpha strike.

Another nice bit is that both of these can be taken by the same Engineer BO, meaning anybody can get them on any character.
