The borg are very resistant to sci's control powers, a single gravity well 3 won't hold a borg ship unless it's having engine problems from B:Target engines, tyken's rift or eject warp plasma. It will slow them down and do damage but don't start dreaming about it holding a dozen probes at bay without a lucky Doff proc(2+ gravity wells will do it just fine) or another contributing factor.

I don't think scramble sensors even works on the borg anymore and with the "damage decreases duration" aspect it's never going to last a whole 12 seconds. Tractor beam repulsors can really help control borg ships and the AOE shield damage of CPB combined with T:spread is a very useful thing. I wouldn't bother with siphon power. If you don't have a MACO shield use that slot for a higher TSS or HE.
