So here's the thing. I was in Ker'rat doing my usually farming when this guy/girl in a galor comes along at start blasting us at spawn. No worries, pretty usual and keeps me on my toes. We all start firing back (3 of us active, one sort of afk spawning spacebar). I'm on him pretty solid in my advanced escort, tac teams cycling, AP forward facing with quantum torps for testing (still not sold on them), tachyon beam II firing as needed, cannon spreads a flyin'. That's just me, others are also hitting him pretty hard. I saw his hull drop a little but the thing that stood out was that literally nothing (and I do mean this - NOTHING) was happening to his shields. I'm not a very good PvPer, I'm just now getting into that aspect of the game, but I do know that even under the worse circumstances I can at least drop the shields a little. There was no budge, not even a micro drop on those shields. I also noticed that his/her shield indicators around his ship glowed more brightly than others (similar to when I do a shield heal, only they never stopped). I understand some folks have strong shields, but invincible shields? That take a full blast of AP, quantum, and tachyon II? So my question is: what are these shields and where the heck to I get them

sounds like EPTS2, Tac Team and possibly TSS2 with an aux battery.
I've soloed 3 Escorts at a time, in my own Escort with that going up, and killed them all.

Sure, I've seen high shield power in effect, but it at least budges a little, even if by only a percentage or two while cycles cool down. But complete and utter invincibility to all damage to shields? Haven't seen that until today. I noticed someone else saying that the Jem'Hadar shields are pretty strong, so I was wondering if they were those ones. I mean, my shields never fell, but they fluctuated with the cooldowns.

It's probably the Jem'Hadar Shields. Their "jem'hadar crew bracing" apparently has the effect of a constantly-on Brace for Impact. Which would be nifty in and of itself, but it ALSO trips the Shield Distribution Officer and Hazard Officer DOFF procs (about shield regen and damage reduction) just like normal Brace for Impact. All the time. Oops! Unless that's SUPPOSED to happen...

This could explain why the Prophets sent the fleet back now of all times. With this sort of shield tech practically ubiquitous in Starfleet and the KDF soon, the Borg and even the Iconians don't stand a chance

Borticus said during STOked live that he hadn't thought about the shields interaction with the DOFF that it's interracting with and he sent an email about that bug to Heretic since he's on Vacation.
