That is odd because I heard that the MACO set is better WITH the bug. :p

Hey I just wanted to say thanks for the info evreyone. I was a bit confused about the whole DPS/MSC thing.Also regeneration time for the shields doesnt matter so much for me.I buy like 10-20 shield batteries before I go on each mission plus I have the Miracle Worker ability and one of my engineers has emergency power to shields.Not to mention I try to always get a shield emitter console.

Pick up the Sci-skill Science Team. It is also a shield buff.

Do you have the Exo-Comp Duty Officer? He will increase the power of your Batteries if you assign him to your Space department.

Science Team isn't a Shield buff. It's a Shield Heal.. Emergency Power to Shields is the Shield buffer. It has a moderate shield heal. Second it give a Shields Subsystem power bonus (raises shield regeneration rate and shield's damage resistance due to power level), And third it gives a buff to shield damage resistance stack stacks with the base shield damage resistance.

Science Team Heals the Shields but also removes Science-type Debuffs. It used to also give you a Buff to the Ops Skills, but I do not know if still Buffs anything since the Skill Tree Update.

I was speaking of Science Team only as it related to Deflector Shields. Science Team doesn't buff any skills since the Skills revamp. And before the skills buff only lasted 5 seconds. They were of very little benefit. But for the Record I always have at least 1 Science Team and 1 Emergency Power to Shields for any character of mine. I consider them must have abilities.
