# 1 Borg Shield neutraliser

Is Reverse Shield Polarity a counter for Borg Shield Neutraliser?

I was sure I activated this just before I was struck in a red Alert last night ...

... but them I was pretty tired and it could have been Hazard Emitters instead.

It's Hazard Emitters and any source of a ridiculous amount of shield regen (pre-fix Omega bonus, TSS2+EPtS3+Rotate Shield Frequency, etc.). The latter doesn't clear the debuff, but makes sure that the shields stay up despite the Borg's best efforts.

Hazzard Emitters is the only thing that counters it.

RSP is more like a way to keep shields charged while the drain effect is in use.

HE gets rid of the effect.

Not that it's really worth your time to do it, since they can use this retarded ability far more often than you can use HE. More effective to focus all of your remaining shield power into the quadrant facing the enemy, since the drain effect applies to each quadrant and leaving your shields balanced will drain them 4 times faster.

I'm finding Hazard Emitters to be utterly useless as of late because the Borg simply reapply their neutralizer. Sometimes twice or 3 times in a very short time frame (I've had 2 concentric sheild debuff rings on my ship, both from the same attacking cube).

Doesn't Science Team clear it also?

Nope, it just indirectly reduces the effects.

Well, crapola. I am going to have to find a better way of doing it. Hazard Emitters isn't going to help what with that shield rain hitting so often and a plasma fire catching every three seconds.

Starship Power Insulators skill will reduce the amount of shield drains. Rank 6 in the skill all but stops it from one drain.
