I dont particularly like the Aegis shield in cruiser builds. Especially with all the potential shield heals available to you it makes more sense to compliment your high shield power levels with a shield array with +250 regen rate. Aegis isnt good at shield regen. Good in escorts where they can use the bonus defense with their combined speed to dodge a few bullets, take as much damage as possible in a high cap shield, and get out of dodge if not getting supplimental heals from a team. Cruisers hanging out in a fight need some shields that can take a beating and sufficiently regenerate itself under sustained fire. Convariants just arent up to the job in that regard and IMO
