I don't know - the prototype loot drops, particularly the Deflector/Shield/Engines were never reliable. I do actually prefer the new system - I don't need any part of the Omega/Maco set but the Honor Guard set is supposedly useable now and will be interesting to see how that performs on a Starfleet ship.
Considering that historically, MACO>KHG, I kind of suspect we'll be seeing lots of Feds wondering why it hasn't made them gods on the grid-just as they do with the MACO set now.
the irritation for me, of course, is that it's just another Klink toy they only get right so they can give it to the Feds.
for some reason, makes it feel a lot like KDF players are the unpaid, unrecognized beta-testers for the Federation...
