Nothing overkill about Aegis - it is a highly potent defensive shield set that I use to tank like a boss in ESTFs. Yes, some (such as PvPers) say MACO is better but Aegis is cheaply available on the Exchange and works great for me.

I like the big bonus to shield power and the immense structural integrity boost from Aegis deflectors too.

The Jem'Hadar set is more tuned for fast attack ships with Polaron weapons but I've seen Odysseys use that sometimes for some reason.

The Breen Supercooled set looks speced out for a science ship but I have not used that before. It the deflector of the Breen set gives a boost to graviton or particle generators it may be beneficial to your carrier's science abilities (but this also depends on which sci boff skills you like to use in the first place.)


End of the day, if the ship doesn't explode randomly, your shields work just fine

I can vouch for aegis, but MACO works better because it's a resiliant shield array, and it's ability boosts your power levels almost every time you are hit. I've had almost perpetual 125 wep power throughout the entirety of a PvP match with an MACO shield and no EPS power transfer.

Jem set is probably because of a power deprivation build, not that it might work well anymore... (or a higher turn rate)

Breen set is nice, but it's ability is now pretty much useless due to power insulators.

I'm fairly casual, only done 2 successful STFs, so MACOs etc would be nice, but not attainable any time soon.
I run alot of shield heals and some hull heals on my boffs, but guess I'll stick with the Aegis still. Maybe test the Jem'Hadar, see if stuff dies faster with it... don't think I have the right weapon type tho, using the disruptors from the Galor :s
Should really do more STFs
