I have figured it out. You were right about the borg and aegis but it wasn't completely done before the Thursday patch. There was an additional nerf done on 11/17
With full power speccing on live using aegis
With full power speccing on F2P with aegis prior to the 11/17 patch
62/25 shields -11
73/50 Aux +2
Current on F2P with same spec as above and aegis
59/25 shields -3
51/25 engines -2
74/50 Aux +1
So with these changes I have lost 14 points of shield power and 2 points of engine power while only gaining 3 points of Aux.
The first change was not an easy one to swallow but it keeps getting worse.
Nobody asked for these changes.
The changes aren't fixing a broken system.
Why is this happening
I would like to see an explanation from Cryptic as to the reason behind these changes.
without an explanation this is just a nerf for the sake of a nerf
