But if you do ANY kind of AoE right at the start, you're in trouble.
Pretty much this - on my first runthrough I popped a Frrdback pulse and FAW - and the return fire on me was MASSIVE (and a result of me just thinking - hey it's STO - even on Elite I rarely feel challenged; lets just spam DPS and get this over with.)

So, yes, O was actually happy that they didn't just give us a final battle that was NOT'spam as much DPS and AoE and just mop up'; as if you try that out of the gate the Jem Hadar fleet will be all too happy tp light you up and blow you away in short order.

On my second run, I took a look at what was arund - started picking off ships singly as they became more damaged and got things pretty much under control by the time the Big-E showed up
