Hey everyone.

I know Borg are about to get a revamp, but I am still eager to hear specifics on beating them on the ground. My character is Tactical, so I do not have access to Science and Engineering captain powers.
  1. What Bridge Officer powers counter Borg abilities?
  2. What weapons, and what shields, are best for my anti Borg away team?
  3. Is there any other specific tactics you can recommend?

Thanks in advance.

That might be tricky due to the server bug pushing back the test weekend, but in general stay mobile, kill the medical drones first, avoid the proto drones and if you have the ophidian cane, USE IT!!!

Well i play a liberated femal Borg Engineer, so it is very easy to kill the Borg.

I use the following set up:

1. Female Borg Bridge Officer Engineer

2. Breen Tactical Bridge Officer with the Breen Weapon

3. Very rare Bajoran Science/Medical Bridge officer (has the special skill "Elite soldier")

4. Very rare human Medical Bridge officer (has the special skill "Leadership").

I also use tribbles which make +1,5% and +2,0% extra battle damage and the ophidian cane.

With this set up you can manage to kill each group of enemy.

For the Borg:

First kill the proto drones, than the medicals. The proto drones make much damage but have no shields.

As a Tactical you can use security escorts to use the advantage of two more teammates. Use "focus on my target" to kill the other drones.

As a tactical you need one Engineer BO who can fabricate turrets, shield generators or force fied domes.

The Borg aren't too bad once you get the hang of the way they attack. They don't really do massive damage outside of the STFs so they're more about reasonably high sustained damage, with stuns from the force plasma bolts that can let them get close enough to use the Assimilation debuff on you.
For Bridge Officer powers I tend to use a Sci Medic, Sci Debuffer and a pair of Engineer. The most important skill that I use, especially in enclosed spaces like inside those bases in the nebulas, or the Borg Cube in Assimilation is Gravimetric Shift. When the Borg get close it can be a lifesaver, and gives you a few seconds to back away.
Weapons are entirely up to you, but my Tacs use AP for the higher crits, Sci and Eng I use Phasers for the stun proc. Shields that are useful against the Borg have the [Pla] modifier, but any other modifiers you use are down to preference.
TYactics are fairly simple; I target the Drones first (they spawn the proto drones. They don't hit very hard but the constant bolt spray and stuns from the force plasma bolt can get a bit much if not controlled), followed by Medical Drones (keep away from these, they use the same Assimilation debuff as the Drones, but they also use a Neural Blast which can be a killer with the random stuns). Tac/Elite Tac and Elite Heavy Tac drones are simple, they just have a lot of HP, but they don't use the Assimilation or Neural Blast debuffs so they're safe to melee if that's your thing. Also remember that the Elite Tacs and Elite Heavy Tacs can sometimes regenerate there shields, but it won't show on the UI so a melee weapon speeds things up nicely for these guys if that happens.
