Fair enough. Wink

While it is possible to flesh out a build solely built for min/maxing shield/hull tanking, I would argue it wouldn't be ideal in PvE, but may have a niche in PvP.  The reasoning for this is based on the fact this kind of build would have to compete for aggro with high-DPS builds which use Strategist & +Threat Embassy Consoles.  Many of these can rip through Borg Cubes in less than a second while simultaneously being able to sustain AKTS-in% of 60%+.  These builds also eliminate the enemy before it has a change to do significant, sustained damage.  It would be difficult for a pure-tank build that sacrifices DPS for Tanking to compete with high-DPS Strategist builds. I'm no expert on PvP, but it's possible a build like this could have a niche there.  Again, not an expert on PvP. Wink

In short, it's possible to min/max a build solely focusing on shield/hull strength at the expense of DPS-potential, but not ideal. Just my $0.02
