Dunno about worst, but it was the funniest:

Queued up an STF whilst in a patrol, started counting down from 10 to start the STF, started taking out the flagship and her group, started to warp out, got blown up.

Arrived in STF as a ball of fire.

Got some laughs, though.

That is pretty funny to be fair - must've come across like the Borg can now destroy ships with little more than a stern glare!

Had another stinker during my brief daily lunchtime play - queued for CSE, and was quite looking forward to it since have been griding for fleet marks and little else lately.

Anyway, long story short, myself and a player in a well-kitted out Odyssey busted a gut trying to protect the Kang - the other three losers we were burdened with did their own thing (one was even shooting at one of the Borg cubes and ignoring the generators). Furthermore they exploded frequently and ignored team chat.

Said other three losers bailed as soon as the optional failed (gee, wonder how that happened), Idiots.

That sounds like one of my runs on Infected last night where the guy taking the probes/spheres failed to kill a single one and let them all through while shooting at the gate while the transformers were still up. *facepalm* Also everyone just ran over and blew up generators instead of doing the 10% rule.

So I run over and manage to destroy the first barrage of probes and sphere's he lets through before they can heal the Generator and then ask him if he wants to switch positions and let me take the probes. Of course he says no, he's "got this easy." So as we go to the second Transformer I keep an eye on him and of course he lets about 3 go by him w/o even firing a shot and is firing at the gate....I mean can these people not see that the hull % on the target isn't decreasing? Anyways, this time we fail the optional because no one followed the 10% rule and we've got Nanite sphere's everywhere and I happen to be the only person trying to destroy them despite multiple messages sent in chat. I look over and every one on the team is firing at the Transformer while it stays at 100%...I couldn't believe it. So I finally get the sphere's cleaned up and we take down the Transformer, but it was honestly one of the worst runs I've had in recent memory.

another KASE

we get in, I see one Advanced Escort, a star cruiser, an oddy, and myself in a glass cannon. a fifth is loading, but they do not wait for him. so we start. a fifth joined with a sovvie. yay, right?! I had my hopes at least in the advanced escort, until it turned out, that it farted skittles from the back, and phasers from the front (phaser single beams!). the oddy used phased antiproton weapons (phaser plus antiproton beams) and the rest used tetryon (at least they had the same weapons in all slots).

now my mood was bad right after the advanced escort started shooting, and the fact, that I could only hold the aggro against the tactical cube for 96% percent (4% left), when I died, also saddened me.
after I die, the cube makes a last attempt to kill the star cruiser (full tetryon). at this point, the guy writes in, if anyone has crit components, because he has 12(!) critical injuries on his ship (we finished with him having only 17). ofc I only reply, that they are in my bank.

and now comes the struggle. critical component guy says, he has the left. ody goes in the middle, and helps critical guy. the rest go right, I go left so to have my cube. I see, that the ody barely handles the probes, so the moment the cube spawns I have to go and kill the probes. I advise them to get closer to the gate. this makes the ody to start circling around the time gate, in big rounds, so he is closer to both gates.
critical component guy takes this too, and goes to the right gate, around 2km far, so he gets one more critical injury.
meanwhile some probes go through, that forces the two guys who are killed constantly by the right side cube, to join the defense. yes, four probe defense. alright, I guess thats gonna be fine (at this point, I did not want to defend, because I knew, if I go for the probes, noone will kill the gates, at least not today).

left cubes all dead by my hands, critical guy insists someone take the probes, because they are hard to kill, and he is lot better at killing transformers. goes to a transformer, seeing how 3 other defend (remember, the ody guy only circles the time gate, so he is has no effect on anything whatsoever). he brings in the cube, and gets another injury, plus brings the cube right to the middle, so except the ody, everyone dies. I take out the cube and the probes (here the cube managed to kill me with a "heavy plasma torpedo deals 69493(94412) kinetic damage"). still, no probes went through at this time.

I start to take out the transformers, the increased number of probes does not help, and the sovvie starts to follow me around, when every transformer is down, instead of doing some damage on the other gates.
this meant that only 3 defended the probes. critical guy, started to announce every wave of probes, like it was of interest.

until now 7 probes went through, and I saw no way, we will finish this, so I decided, to kill a gate, and see what happens with the spheres. sadly they were better, and failed to defend the probes long enough for me, to kill a gate (4%, I was so close to entertainment )

after the game, critical component guy writes on me, for some advice. sadly this made me realise, that I would hesitate to let him in normal stfs, not elites, though I tried to give him some advice, so people playing with him will not have such a bad game (though this was by far not only his fault, at least he was communicating, and knew where the chat was)

That's not even the worst that's been posted about. There's a guy a few pages back who had 30 to 40. How? I don't have a clue.

I've come out of one STF with multiple injuries on my escort (not that many though), but we don't talk about that.

Just came out of Infected Space STF. Aside from being yelled at that i should learn to tank (Sure..as soon as i get into a team which doesnt consists of 4 tac officers in escorts and or cruisers, and no science vessel or support skills). After apologizing profusely for being blown up by the Tactical Cube, the warp gate and several spheres after all my cooldowns ran out, we cleared the STF with little trouble, altough i died in the last second again. Meh..

After i respawned the rest of the guys were already gone, and i flew towards the loot..which wasnt there anymore..180 seconds of frantic searching ensued, after which the instance closed, and i had nothing more for my 30 minutes the a ****ton of used up consumeables. MAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!
