Has anyone ever been in a PUG where they've succeeded in this? Every team I've been in, we've all been busy killing the incoming Tholians with weapons plus all the little tricks available on the consoles, and on many occasions we haven't even been swarmed (i.e. as soon as the spiders appear, we get rid of them before they get to the platform), but I haven't been in a PUG that's won it yet. I'm sick of seeing those giant, looming spider-legs at the end cutscene.
This is getting me neurotic and twitchy. Is there a special knack to it, if so what?
