So Cryptic backed out and fixed STFs? Think again.

beat it a few times in a (sit down for this) BIRD OF PREY.
it's your team, not the mission, which needs a rework.
Here are a few things you apparently failed to take note of the first run, so we'll go over them again...
The Borg Queen uses Science powers, just like a player. The unimatrix ships ALSO use science powers. This means you need....
a Science Officer with SNB, especially at the final stage against the eight-sided-dice-of-death.
It's also helpful to have someone on the team with crowd control, drains, and team-heals.
amazingly, just doing "Moar DPS!!!" isn't going to win the day for you. Big shocker there, it's one of the things a lot of STF'ers with experience have been wanting, and surprise-an all Tac-captain-team in Escorts isn't going to do the job this time.
an All-cruiser team isn't going to do it either-you need a
team to make this mission work. You may be ill-used to the idea of doing that, but the difference is as sharp as the difference between "normal" STFs and "Elites" in the last season-what works everywhere else? maybe doesn't work so well here-but it's neither impossible, nor unworkable unless you're so inflexible that you think what works in ISE is going to be worth a dime's difference in Onslaught.
