So in any pvp or space battle in general, you'll likely only get the hull regen to proc maybe two or three times, maximum of like 4 times. Thats extremely low, especially if your trying to use it a safety measure. Its far better to use the 5% defense bonus from the aegis engines because it is a concrete defense. You'll always have it, therefore you know your build is always solid. Instead of having to rely on a lucky proc chance.
The 2-piece borg bonus was recently changed this month. The proc rate was increased, and the cooldown decreased. The borg set is definitely a viable alternative to Aegis engine.
