I've participated in wins on Holodeck, but I'm also a VA in an Assault Cruiser over there. I dunno, it just feels nigh impossible to beat them on Tribble. I'm unaccustomed to taking something like 345k from a single hit (those pesky plasma blasts are downright deadly).
Here's hoping everyone else has fared better!
5 bolstered-to-level-45 ships are no match for the RA content. You don't have the weapon slots and Boff/Captain powers required to do anything significant.
I proposed a ship-weighting solution that would allow bolstering to work, but it will never come to fruition.
