Just a slight update.

I've managed to get my hands on the entire borg set now and have replaced my Subspace jumper with the borg mod, I've also got a hold of the MACO Deflector and Shield (But only at MK XI) Would it still be worth switching out the borg shield for the MACO one? I've also replaced all my Polaron Phase Modulator to MK XI and a few other consoles i can't remember x)

Also what's the standing on having x4 Antiproton Duel heavy cannons MK XII As forward firing guns? I've so far got a hold of 2 (Borg variant) Only problem i can see with them is getting the EC for x4 antiproton mag regulators MK XII as they are going for roughly 37mill in the exchange and i wanted to know if there was any easier way to obtain them (i.e Do they have higher drop rates in certain sectors or can you only get them from elite STF missions?)

Thanks any advice would be appreciated =)

Steve.

Absolutely. The MACO Mk. XI shield is a far, far better choice than the Borg shield for an Escort.

AP is great for shredding Borg.

You can get Mag Regulators as drops from Ker'rat (a long as you go in and don't jump instances), and well as random drops from Elite STFs. Honestly, though, don't sweat the Mk XII gear (any of it), it's nice to have, but by no means necessary or required (remember, Mk XII Blue is Mk XI purple, numbers wise, with one less mod). Just sit back, relax, and enjoy your badass escort. Pickup new gear/items as you go, but don't worry about grinding hard for 'em.

Alright i'll switch out my shields ^^ thanks for letting me know =)

And yeah I've noticed between some of the blue and purple gear there isn't much difference But i'll just remember to not grind to hard for anything because then the game can become boring x) And thanks for letting me know about the drops too =D

Most welcome. It just makes me a bit sad when I see people all but kill themselves to get the absolute best gear in the game, only for them to realize they're not doing anything now they couldn't do before with virtually the same amount of effort on their part.

Yeah i can understand that There are a few games I've played where I'll grind to get the best of the best equipment just to realize it wasn't really worth it x) To be honest Star trek is one of the main games I've played recently where I've been doing my best to not grind and pace myself so I can fully explore all aspects of the game =)
