What's so POS about the Borg shields...

Other than the fact that, being regenerative, their base point count is low which means that alpha spikes and the massive 30k+ late game deathbolts get through easier?

I've lived very well with regen shields on my sci ships before, especially when I run a 50+ in base shield power (that regen makes sphere pressure DPS = nothing). However, having moved onto a more weapons/aux based power scheme for quick probe squishing, I find the extra shield points from the MACO or even Omega are more useful for keeping me alive long enough for my buddy the escort to pop a sphere and my heals handle the second sphere...

Still at it. CBS "restrictions" fell by wayside with freebie Breen. Time to re-examine ENT and ToS at tier 5, repurpose the Connie into Sci and rebuild an Akira escort into the "NX". 6 "eras", spread evenly over all the classes...
