That would be some good info to have maybe you could post back later.
If I recall, it said Plasma fire or something similar, indicating the DOT. I don't have plasma weapons, only the embassy sci consoles with +plasma. So, what we saw was 5 stacks of Phaser resistance and 5 stacks of Plasma fire.

Combat log did not differentiate. According to my fleet mate, in the span of two EPtS, there was phaser damage (my weapon type), 7k in kinetic damage (from the Omega T4 passive), and 2k in plasma damage (from the Embassy +plasma consoles). This was without buffs.

Right, but what I'm saying is that the plasma DOT from the +plasma embassy consoles, was being applied to the shields, hence the resistance stack.

I was under the impression that the plasma fire happens on the hull, not the shields. My fleet mate was not running the Aegis set.
