(I have no idea how these numbers affect gameplay/mechanics, so bear with me.)

Adding up to the current passive skills and stats, since I have no original ideas for this I suggest adding skills/stats from the BORG set to the MACO/OMEGA sets. No huge differences so the BORG set won't become useless nor the MACO/OMEGA sets become broken/overpowered, and the grind/farming becomes more worthy.

New MACO set:

* Adding up to set 2 (keeping Magnetoplasma Relays)
- Autonomous Regeneration Sequencer

Passive
+0.40 / +0.45 / +0.50 Health Regeneration
+12 / +14 / +16 Starship Hull Repair
When receiving All Damage, 4% / 6% / 8% chance of applying Autonomous Regeneration Sequencer
+4.4 / +4.6 / +4.8 Hull Regeneration over 10 sec
Reduces Damage to Hull by ??% for 10 sec

* Adding up to the shield array
- Multi-Regenerative Shield Array

Passive
When receiving All Damage, 12% / 13% / 14% chance of applying Multi-Regenerative Shield Array when any shield facing falls below 20%
approximately 415 / 515 / 615 Shield Regeneration applied once to each facing
approximately 1585 / 1685 / 1785 Shield Regeneration over 10 sec to each facing
Cleanses all Hazard Debuffs, such as the Borg Shield Drain, and continues to cleanse every 0.5 seconds for 15 seconds.

New OMEGA set:

* Adding up to set 2 (keeping Tetryon Glider)
- Autonomous Frequency Remodulator

When receiving All Damage, 4% / 6% / 8% chance of applying Autonomous Frequency Remodulator
+2.5% / +5% / +7.5% all energy damage for 10 seconds.
+2% / +4% / +6% shield penetration damage for transphasic torpedoes for 10 seconds.






The X / Y / Z numbers are for MK X / XI / XII, repectively.

When did these sets become useless? They are still the hottest things out there. If anything the MACO shields should probably be cut to 5% (or require at least 2 pieces to reach the full 10%). And Tet Glider needs a reduction or Power Insulators need to work better. Maybe I'm wrong about these reductions but I firmly disagree that these sets need any kind of boost. They are already so great.

Power Insulators. Thats the term. yes, if that skill worked against all drain equally the TeT glider would most likely not be consider OP in the scheem of things.
Otherwise I agree with Stevehale, when did these sets go cold?

After testing the BORG set + MACO shield combo, which I thought wouldn't be even close to full MACO set, I figured I won't go back. Survivability on tactical escort has increased considerabily, it's always amusing watching my shields going back to 100% without using EPtS and Science Team whereas before I'd be taking damage to hull and hoping Embrace for Impact would make the doff chance skill to kick in.

that pretty much covers my exp with maco and omega sets, maco or omega shield works better then borg shield, but the borg+maco or even omega is better then full maco or omega at least for pve and warzone style pvp(i dont do other pvp, it dosnt interest me)

I wish I could trade my maco/omega engines/deflectors and lower level shields in for dilithium or break them down for crafting or something.....waste of time....and effort......(wish i could have traded the tech drops for dilithium or even prototype salvage.....or mk xii gear vouchers.....)

oh well, i got a feeling if you want any better then whats out now, you may endup just endup having to buy cstore points and get them with that....

and if you want to get any bugs fixed, offer to pay for them to be fixed with cstore points.....

If the Borg set (2 and especially 3 piece) is so much better than the alternative then there are two possible conclusions. Literally everything else is worthless and in need of a buff or the more likely conclusion is that the Borg procs are too powerful and needs a reduction.

The MACO and Omega sets are great for what they do, honestly they are too good, it's just that the Borg set healing is so much better in most situations.
