Any time my fleet pugs a first-timer through KA I tell them that if they use the borg shield to get EPtS 2.
For escorts (Fleet Escort excepted) with only the two Engineering slots to play with, do you believe the utility of Engineering Team 1 would generally be outweighed by the shield benefits from having two copies of EPtS outlined above?
