Omega fore, hyper-plasma aft was the plan.

Maybe go Reman-11 Deflector and Engines (save yourself 20k dilithium and only lose 1-2 points in Graviton Generators and Subspace Decompiler; probably never notice the difference), get the 2-piece bonus for your plasma torps, then use your MACO-11 shield? Its a thought.
Well, that's another thing, the MACO deflector really boosts skills I use (even though they are mostly passives that increase shield and hull strength so maybe a non-issue with the covariant shields) while the Reman one would be completely useless to me except for the fact that it would grant the 3-piece set-bonus which would allow me to massively overheal my shields. Of course in comparison to MACO I would take double the bleedthrough damage. Then again the 2-piece set bonus boosts plasma torpedoes and with the Omega and Hyper-plasma launchers I would also get Omega weapon amplifier and bonus on the plasma fire damage. Heck, if I go nuts I could decide to get the Mk XII Romulan plasma weapons too for the 3 piece set bonus of the Romulan weapon set.... What I would really miss is the asynchronous warp field
