There are ways around most of the ground combat, either through luck or skill or letting friendly NPCs do work for you. Once you know what to do or not to do, the mission gets dramatically shorter on replay.

Your first time through, it may take about as long as a Featured Episode and you might find it challenging. I can get through it in about 10 minutes, because I know all the tricks, some of which come through exploring dialogue.

There is, for example, a password you need to proceed at one point. Getting it may require killing 15 Borg (3 groups). If you already know it, you don't have to. If you're lucky and pick the right consoles, you don't have to. If you know which consoles are safe to use, you don't have to.

The space combat is less optional but it should be pretty challenging if you make the wrong choices.
