It is a covariant shield array. it can keep its cap. First you people "kill" your own ship, then as a byproduct "kill' the kdf one now since your shield is different you want ours to be lowered too. diisgusting
The issue is that it is the same as a covariant[cap]x4. Maco got nerfed because it was a resilient [cap]x4. In both cases the issue is that the shield has an extra cap as well as other goodies vs. other shields you can buy. Just say no to overpowered items that limit choices.
And what's that supposed to mean? This us vs. them mentality is completely immature.
For the record, I avoided playing my fed characters and only played on Klingon during the haco debacle. Just because the feds had a bugged overpowered item doesn't mean the Klingons need one also. Two wrongs don't make a right.
