# 1 Gear Selection: MACO or Omega?
02-05-2012, 07:24 AM
Hello.

My Main is a level 50, and I'm currently trying to get him some Mk XII Special STF Equipment for his ship, a Tac Escort Retrofit.

So, counting stats, appearance, and Set Bonuses, which is better for a Tac Escort Retrofit: MACO Gear or Omega Gear?

I also have a character I plan to get into an Odyssey once she hits 50 (finished the special quest to get one, but she's currently level 22 and thus can't use it yet), so I also extend the same question about MACO vs Omega gear to the Odyssey, as well.

I look forward to hearing people's answers.

If in an Escort, I recommend Omega.

If in a Cruiser, I recommend MACO.

I was thinking about this too, wouldn't the MACO shields with the other two Omega pieces be good? Get the bonus Tetryon damage and the still best shields in the game.

After looking at the stats for both pieces on the Star Trek Online Wiki, I agree that the MACO Shields are the best Shields available to Federation Players.

MACO Shields for my Tac Escort Retro and my Odyssey it is, then, but I still need to decide on Engines and Deflector.

I'm also kinda curious as to what would be the best equipment for a Long-Range Science Vessel Retrofit.
