In regard to the Aegis discussion, in looking at what to "upgrade" to on one of my toons...originally it had been that Borg thought. That changed a wee while back, as I considered Aegis 'n MACO options.

Aegis Deflector, Aegis Engines, MACO Shields.

Aegis Engines, MACO Deflector, MACO Shields.

With Elusive, 9 Maneuvers, and the 2pc Aegis you're looking at +90% Defense in an Escort while moving or +15% while sitting still.

With Elusive, 9 Maneuvers, and just the Aegis engines you're looking at +85% Defense in an Escort while moving or...+15% while sitting still.

In trading the Aegis Deflector for the MACO Deflector, you're doing the following:

-5% defense while moving
+5% ability recharge speed (but is this Mk XI or MK XII)
+15.2 insulators (but is this Mk XI or MK XII)

-5 shield power
+2.8 shield emitters
-4.9 shield systems
-4.9 inertial dampeners
-15.2 power insulators (which you're making up with the 2pc MACO, possibly more)
+26 structural integrity
+8.8 electro-plasma system
+18 graviton generators

Course, as mentioned for the Fleet folks - they'd be looking at different options with regard to Deflectors and Shields.

I'm not a Fleet guy, so I was just sharing what I've looked and what folks thought about 2pc MACO w/Aegis Engines as opposed to 2pc Aegis w/MACO Shields...
