But that's another discussion.

The problem is that your captain gets thrown the universe's biggest Idiot Ball. It's obvious after you scan the four crates that you're being played for a sucker by Admiral Not-A-Spy. At that point, any Starfleet officer with a modicum of brains would put the mission on hold to figure out just what exactly is going on. But you're not given that option, you're just railroaded into believing Admiral Not-A-Spy's obvious lies and you go on a killing spree in this Romulan medical research facility. If you were given a choice, if you could stop and say, "let's open up these crates just to double check," then that mission would be sooooo much better.
I agree and also after you beam back up to your ship and the Romulan ships show up you should have been able to pull a Captain Kirk and surrendered yourself into Romulan Custody in order to prevent a war. This mission reminded me of the Undiscovered Country if Kirk was more of a jerk.
