I've been using the Borg shield with the Aegis Deflector (I think it's the deflector; I use whichever Aegis component increases shield power) on my star cruiser for quite a while now and have found it to be phenomenal protection. I can handle quite a bit of damage over time and when the regen shield proc kicks in, I'm pretty much invulnerable* for the duration. That said, alpha strikes can be trouble, but with sci team and emergency power to shields, I can generally heal any alpha strike that significantly damages my shields.
*Invulnerability claim does not apply to crazy, impossible battles in which you are outnumbered 10 to 1.
