Point of interest: the term "Alpha Strike" actually comes from Vietnam era carrier tactics. An Alpha Strike was a single strike mission by all the aircraft that could be carried on the flight deck as to be launched as rapidly as possable. The strike would comprise about 30 or so planes; roughly half the air wing.
My Romulan Liberated Borg character made it to Level 30 and beat the (old) Defense of New Romulus with the skill point bug.
