For sections 4 and 5, it can be invaluable to have a science officer use the medic kit to heal the Romulan civilians. During this phase it is also crucial for players to avoid firing AoE weapons into the Romulan civilian crowd. Players are so used to having friendly fire turned off, but in this mission your allies can be killed. Pulsewave assault, assault miniguns, blast assault, grenades, mortars, induction field, mines, the omega autocarbine, dual pistol scatter fire, and wide beam pistols can end up slaughtering the very civilians you are trying to protect. When I play this mission, I tend to swap out my pulsewave for a compression pistol/split beam rifle and I keep a sniper rifle for secondary.
