EDIT: if you're going to try recreating it, try replaying one of the older missions where you need to shoot asteroids (I forget which one, something with a transwarp gate in Romulan space?) Then that way at least the target will be stationary and you won't have enemies to deal with.
Good idea...I'll try it with that mission although low level Rommies aren't a threat but being stationary is a must for it to be a real examination.
