Without going into set shields, generally Resilient and Covariant shields are usually considered the best.

Covariants have huge capacities, but little regeneration. Sci ships can use them better because of their large shield modifiers, but any ship is ok with em.

Resilient shields absorb a small amount of damage, and allow very little damage through, thus they can take quite a bit without failing as quickly as another shield type, at the cost of having a lot less shield strength compared to others.

Why are all of STO's EPs named 'Steve'?
