I would try to get the Maco mk XII shield asap. If it's out of reach I've found the advanced fleet resilient shield Cap 3 works well also.

In PVP u could go with all cannons. Yes you waste the TS in the ensign slot but you'll
see your dps jump greatly.

Use 2 field generators in the Sci slots. Put the cloak in engineering slot. You don't need the cloak in PVE so swap it out when appropriate. Also put the borg console in engineering as well. You need max dps and max Shields.

You need to carry at least 2 damage control Doffs to reduce to cooldown of EPTS1 down to 31 seconds. itll feel like youre carrying 2 EPTSs. This is how I tank so well in the defiant. Near 100% uptime. Granted it's not perfect with the cooldown it's damn close.

Also try to upgrade to the fleet defiant when you can. Same boffs, extra tac console, more hull.

If you need more help feel free to PM me ingame or email.
