Adding on to previous posts above, the 2 pc Omega and 2 pc Borg are indeed my favourite for both Tetryon Rider and hull regeneration abilities. I always use the Omega engines and shields, with the Borg deflector.

When I was fresh into STFs I favoured MACO more for its resilience but then I realized speed = defence bonus + easier to react to changing tactical conditions.
M.A.C.O Shield has the power conduit feature, Omega shield has energy wake.

M.A.C.O enhances power to all subsystems while taking damage.
Omega Force shield gives a chance of turn and speed boost. <-- However tooltip says 50% chance and I've SEEN it proc once ever.
