Ganking is indeed lame. I always hated Cryptic in mixing PvE and PvP in that manner where it was too easy to exploit the Borg against other players in easily killing them in PvP.
Not only that it fuels much of the complaining in the Ker'rat zone chat.
Frankly, given all the negativity around PvP, at this point I honeslty wish Cryptic would get rid of it altogether. Especially those who taunt people to kill themselves or wish their families get killed. Just too much Cyberbullying in STO.
