Took a closer look at the new set bonuses.
It appears, that this set will make a properly skilled cruiser captain very competitive.
If you have the updated more powerfully MK XII set you get awesome tanking value. It seems to be designed to enhance damage output as well. The new console/weapon set looks to be very kinetic heavy.
If the cutting beam is anything like the actual Borg version, it should have a good bit of shield penetration.
Makes me want to try a kinetic damage build on a cruiser or science ship, because that should free up enough energy to put into shields.

A tanking torpedo boat with cutting beam.. yeah. Sounds interesting.

Wait? Are we discussing Escort vs. Cruiser vs. Sci ships, or are we discussing ninja-changes to the borg set?

Just need to figure this one out... thanks.

Bit of both - seems to have come down to a discussion pertaining to the overall effect that the ninja changes to the Borg set will have on Escorts/Cruisers respectively (and no-one has really elaborated on Sci yet....).

It was meant to be about the set, but someone bragged about escorts being nerfed down to cruiser level now, hence what started the off topic.

You can't be oblivious to your own bias here. You're already saying cruisers are weak. And you think that's good? That escorts are objectively superior to the other ship types?

I guess the tankiest set now would be the full MACO, but the set bonuses are next to useless.

Going to make it difficult to mix and match sets when you can only get one set bonus.

Well apart from mixing the new Omega Adapted Borg console with the beam or torp and another set...

There is no more Borg tractor beam, because there is no more 4 piece set... so don't worry.

How far your shield strength drops depends on how powerful the Mk XII version is of teh Borg shield.. I don't think anyone has seen those numbers yet.
Can someone math that?
