ISN. Early in my STF career, shortly after Atrox came out...

I'm sitting in my Luna. DBB/turret build not quite 100% [borg] outfitted at the time, tried to maximize forward DPS.

Carrier goes off on crowd control while the rest of us attempt to take out generator/transformer. Things went "relatively" smooth on the first side, so we were expecting an easy run.

First generator on second side popped before 10% reminders went out.

Everyone focuses fire on the remainder, attempt to "beat the rush". I think we were a 2 escort group, either way, DPS was somewhat lacking (me in Luna, Atrox on CC duty, leaving 3 ships and at least one was a cruiser)... Carrier complains he couldn't hold the line. Requests additional gravity well.

I peel from the transformer group (tried to keep facing that general area in case I was needed), and join the Atrox on CC with a well timed/placed GW III, then BFaW/Spread the targets down.

After that save, it was smooth sailing, gateway then tac popped fairly quickly. First ever "blown" optional (ie, did not go according to plan) that I was on a team that recovered. When I apologized to them about lacking DPS, they commended me instead, saying that if it wasn't for my sci, that would have been a blown run.

Second best was earlier today. KASN. Initial blasting of cube shown nobody with antiproton weaponry (crit-heaven). My Tac-alt's Armitage with only [borg] torps. Comment goes out on chat, someone's reply was "this is gonna take a while". Wound up being one of the quickest runs I've done, first gate was down with 7 min remaining (and my only death as the gate blew) and the other side was already down a transformer...
Well, with the upgrade announcement leaving NX and Connie fans in the dust again, can we restart / revisit the T5 Connie and NX threads - since they will no longer be "truly" endgame ships... (after we get the T5 versions, it'll be time to see them added to the T5U upgrade charts too...
