Is it me or are the Red Alerts nearly impossible to finish when everyone's running in a Lt. Cruiser? Tonight I ran one where I was in an Exploration Cruiser, but my teammates were all in the starter ships. I don't know if the Red Alerts are harder or something's been changed, but I haven't participated in a single win yet and I've been playing all week.
I've participated in wins on Holodeck, but I'm also a VA in an Assault Cruiser over there. I dunno, it just feels nigh impossible to beat them on Tribble. I'm unaccustomed to taking something like 345k from a single hit (those pesky plasma blasts are downright deadly).
