# 1 Space...the building frontier

Certain things go with certain builds, but I don't know. Can you guys point me towards what space sets go together and what they are used for? (im too non nerdy to figure it out for myself)

I'll give it a shot.

MACO set is mainly for tanking. But it's also easy to use the MACO Shields and the Borg everything else for the sheer durability it adds to a ship without even trying. Passive heals, passive shield regen, big capacity Shield.
MACO shields go well with MACO Deflectors and MACO Engines.
MACO shields go better with a MACO Deflector and Borg Engine and Borg Console.
MACO shields are godly with Borg Deflector, Borg Engines and Borg Console.

Omega set is better for Escorts than other sets, it's good for damage.
Omega shields go good with Omega Deflectors and Omega Engines.
Omega shields go well with a Omega Deflector and Borg Engine and Borg Console.
Omega shields are't that good with Borg Deflector, Borg Engines and Borg Console.

Borg set is pretty basic but the engines are fast. It's heals like you wouldn't believe but the MACO Shields and 3P is better.
Borg Shields are weak, if you can't get better they will suffice. The Borg Console is so good it should be on every ship.

Jem'Hadar set. It turns you purple and boosts Polaron weapons. I find Omega to be better and put it on a Shuttle craft.
Go 3P or don't bother.

Breen set. Just awful.
Don't bother at all

Aegis. It's good, but the Borg/Maco Shield is 35 EDC and so much easier to get, and far superior. It does make your ship look like it's from Tron.
Expensive to buy worse to make and outclassed by the Borg (except the Shield)

Reman, because grinding a single mission 5 times the hour it's available 90 times is more fun than punching yourself in the face, but not by much.
Your never going to get this set. If you use High Yield Plasma Torpedoes use 2P and the MACO Shields.

I think I covered it all, let the arguing commence.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

Here's another angle:

Borg Set: Makes your ship fart green plasma and wear goth jewelry

Jem'Hadar Set: Makes your ship a promo vehicle for cancer awareness (and improves your Polarons)

Breen Set: Makes your ship fart snowflakes and improves torpedoes you'll never use

Aegis Set: Gives your ship a flashlight and make a Jetsons engine trail

Reman Set: Just get the shield from that one mission and wear it when you want to feel like green space batman

Cruisers: MACO shield and borg 3p set
Escorts: Borg Engine and Console; MACO shield and deflector.

Period. Science ships? Do what you want you silly beasts.

Also, if a ship ever DOESN'T use the borg console...they are doing it wrong.

Hey. I was not going to say anything till people did not say what was best for sci ships. Again depends on the ship and what you do. But I use the atrox carrier and I am trying to get the 3pc borg and the maco shield. I say try because I cannot finish one of the missions to get the console. If you want defense, go 3 pc borg with maco shield.

Sci ships
Power to Weapons? Omega 2P with 2P Borg or 3P Omega and the Borg Console.
Power to Auxillery? MACO 2P with 2P Borg or 3P MACO and the Borg Console.

Neither of the specials really help the Science ship so it's not worth going full 3P on either set. JH set isn't really great for Sci although it is an extra boost to Polaron.
