The Maco shield will keep the ship alive briefing, but once the shields drop is has too low a recharge to survive an elite STF firepower unless you devote all your science powers to shield and hull heals, which limits offense greatly. The borg set can keep your shields up quite some time, the largest issue is the plasma fires and bleed through can rip your hull out while your shields are up, and the plasma torpedos and especially torpedo spreads will one hit kill you. The borg set needs field generators, the maco would be more survivable with regeneration rate consoles, but field gens and using RSP might be just as survivable if you plan to drop some bombs and get out.
