The last 4 red alert I have done have failed because of that reason.
Actually if i'm in a group of higher level ships I prefer to target the cubes, especially if the group is lacking in firepower. A single decent Escort can clear the mobs of 2 Cubes with ease whereas the spheres and probe groups are a nightmare to destroy with all those shield drains flying around. If there are a lot of lower level players though i'll tend to look for the sphere groups and get them (the lower level players) in team, that way I can clear a lot of the probes and spheres and they'll get more XP. Won't help against the command ship but at least they get something out of it.
