...Also... you're using the NX-class replica at Admiral? Or was that just an example? If the former... you do realize you're at a severe disadvantage with respect to everything, right?
The NX is partially an example. I dont really use it unless I am in the mood for starbase 24, or if I replay some missions. I mainly focuses on the Galaxy and the Odyssey for my every day use.

I would like to improve the shields on the NX for some playing around with but I want to improve all my ships. I am not giving up hope that one day we will have all starships upgraded with consoles that level up based off your bridge officer`s rank working at said station.

Regardless, you can still make comparisons based on the base stats of the shields and decide which shields you want on your ship. If you're in an escort, I'd recommend selling the covariants.
I have mostly cruisers, but I have the NX light escort I use time to time for something different, and I have a heavy escort Akira class that I use some times as well. I just never been sastified with the shield performance on the NX light escort even though the Constitution refit has better shield results and their roughly the same tier.

Most of my shields are regenerative, but I kept the COvariant since it used to be on my Galaxy class a long time till I got the regenerative cap x2 shields.

The Connie-R is a higher tier than the NX, and a cruiser. Cruisers have better shields than escorts.

Yep I couldnt remember exactly I want to say the Consittution refit is a Tier 2 and the NX is a tier 1. But I guess being a cruiser makes sense for it to have better shields. But I settled on the Omega shield and I tried it out on the NX and it got me a higher cap and a higher regenerative rate than the Mk X capx2 shields I had.

I used the 0.78 on the base shield stats and it was close enough to know if its a upgrade or not so thank god getting that little bit of gold.
