I like the red ones best.

December is when it first started to really show up in PvP/Ker'rat ( Use of the MaCO shields that is) and it was easily noticeable on Escorts that would not suffer shield damage.

I think many just didn't know what was causing the invulnerability at the time.....

I'll second that STO's not-gear-dependent space PvP is one of the best things about it, and is why I came back to it. It's the one area where Cryptic couldn't pull the usual WoW-clone me-too that all MMO developers seem to be required to do these days (did someone mention Rift earlier?). They were forced into being creative enough to make a decent PvP.

Especially in lower-level tiers. I always played T2 before I left the game, and now I'm about to get back into T3. Fewer BOFF magic spells and no raid/STF gear = more fun.
