Less is more... more or less.
I agree and not to say "but"-- but, the scale mechanic of the Foundry right now makes it a chore to limit it... because sometimes I want just ONE enemy target to attack but depending on difficulty, rank or whatnot more than 1 spawns unless you have to deliberately remove the actors from the group and hide it in a corner... but then if it's a kill objective you can't do that.
As well, the game's main mechanic is combat so it's hard to not go through armies. In my career in the game I have probably killed FLEETS. Picard probably killed ships that can be counted on one hand (or something).
Anyway, it's a considerable balancing act. But as I said, I agree... more or less.
