Really, I dont see how this is an issue? Just carry MACO engine in your inventory and swap it when you travel ?
Not an issue at all to be honest - I do swap the engines over if necessary, but as I said, I don't using the Aegis engine to be a problem anyway . If I need to get from A to B particularly quickly I either use a transwarp coil or transwarp to my Fleet's Starbase and use it's transwarp gate.

Nope. Doesn't proc that reliably anyways, certainly not when I really need it. Tet Glider on the other hand is less impressive but a lot more reliable.
Yeah...this is why I won't use it. It can proc when your hull is at 99% which can leave you in the dust when you might actually need it. The only time I would use it if I were designing a whole borg ship around the twin sets.
On my Tac Galor ive been using MACO shields + 2 piece Aegis and its not that bad, im still just as good as before, the 2 piece +10% defence while moving is so worth it and is much better than a lot of the 2 piece (and a hell of a lot of 3 piece bonuses - yes im looking at you STF sets)
I heard from a friend who went on tribble that the new Borg set is going to be significantly more powerful than the retro set. Any truth to this?
And on topic:
Without the 2maco2borg combo, I will probably end up going maco deflector and shield with the omega engine, or I might just go full maco set (even though that graviton beam is just... disappointing). I would go full KHG since that set is just sick, but I still have an issue with the covariant shield array. Not as durable as the MACO shield, and regenerates extremely slowly. Even with a TSS2, it still is slow as hell. I am probably set in my MACO shield usage. Resilient, good defenses, and has the power relay proc.
Yeah, I'm keeping it. The hull heal was the best feature of the set for my escorts anyway. I believe I may even go for the new cutting beam. I like my quantums, but I've got to at least see what the 2-piece weapon bonus on the new set does for me. So I'll put that beam in the back, between my turrets.
