So as I became a captain I got both galaxy class and Defiant class, my defiant can deal alot of DPS, but for some reason the shields are very slow to regen, even with two 10%+ shield regen consoles.

So how can I get the shield to regen faster, or is this just something you have to live with since you only got 50 crew?

Fly faster to increase defense (lesser hits means more shields).
Tune up Shieldpower to let them reg faster (at 25 or less they don't reg at all, 100 lets them reg at tripple rate).
Use better Shields (regenerative ones if you like reggen).

Escorts are meant to kill quick (use BOFF abilities for damage and survival) and die fast if not played right (to its advantages).

Shield regen isn't usually fast enough to make much of a difference during a fight. 200 points out of a 4000 cap means waiting 2 minutes to fully regenerate a shield facing, an eternity in a fight. Instead learn to redistribute shield power as reflex and/or use Tactical Team 1 when you're getting hammered. Then, instead of relying on shield regeneration, carry Emergency Power To Shields to reduce shield damage and give some healing, and carry Transfer Shield Strength and/or Science Team for bulk heals.

Ditch the shield regen consoles. Go with the Field generator and go with the the Monotanium Armor Console and/or the Neutronium Alloy Console. Survivability = way higher. If you don't have the Assimilated Module Console, get it...

What they said. And you might consider tossing on Transfer Shield Strength and 2x Attack Pattern Delta or Omega. Aux batteries help too.

Guys, note he's a Captain. Stuff like the Field Generator and the Borg Console aren't available yet.

Basic:

You want 2 copies of Tac Team
You want 2 copies of Emergency Power to shields
You want the shield redistribute button either on your hotbar or bound to something you use often (like the spacebar).


You also want to slot 1-2x Field Generators to increase your capacity.

And lastly, you want to be running over 50 shield power.

This doesn't mean you need to set the shield power to 50.

This can be from a combination of skill slotting (Warp Core Efficiency, Warp Core Potential & Starship Shield Performance),& boost from Emergency power to shields, whatever your final number is it should be 50 at the barest minimum, but generally it will be higher than that if you have 6 ranks in each of the skills I mentioned as well as at least EPTS 1 running.
