Extend Shields is nice to have, but for Kang Defense a well-placed Tactical Team will work even better. This is because Tac Team effectively quadruples the NPC's natural shield capacity and regeneration... (though really, there's no reason you can't use BOTH, as well as Aux2SIF, HE and possibly TSS)

A word on Aux2SIF though: It's not a heal. Well, ok, it is, but it's also a pretty big damage resistance buff. Aux2SIF is available a lot more regularly than Engineering Team, but the main benefit of it to a Tank/Support build is that the uptime (compared to the cooldown) of the Damage Resistance buff it grants is really, really good. If you use it on a ship that's taking damage (or better yet, a ship that is ABOUT to receive damage) then that ship will take LESS damage, meaning that any subsequent heals become more effective.
