Of course, but to capitalize EPS and not "t" suggests otherwise.

I've been lucky to find some good PUGs on occasion, but it's a crapshoot like the OP says.

What is with people turning off teaming? Hello, you're in a PUG! This is always a bad sign. As is people asking what FBP is. /facepalm

Getting confused with the acrynoms I can understand because it happens to me all the time - despite reading a lot on the forum and following the Test/Tribble Chat and all that.

Unwilling to team. No, I can absolutely not understand that. I guess we need a "Free for All" PvP map for those people. Everyone against everyone.

It happens to me to offen =(,everybody goes to different sides on salvage,they all die...
I have extend shields and hazzard emitters,so the first thing i try to do when i arrive and weapon power is not at max yet is to heal someone and noooo that someone is always going full speed away from me so I can't catch him and the one chasing him eventually destroys him.Most players in escorts just don't know that they should stick arround cruisers and science.
When I do get to someone in a rush I sometime's press RSP instead of extend shields,those icons are not that much different,and EPtS is excatly the same as RSP

I can tell you for a fact, the ratio at least for me, is 1/10 bad KDF's, and 9/10 Feds, when I PuG.
I played the exact same ship class, though I was Sci- BC on KDF, and Eng - StarC. BO's were mostly the same, only change was due to which BO's were able to be assigned. (BC has 1 more Eng1 slot, 1 less sci/tac)

The loadouts where different, I was beams and torps on SC, and cannons/torps as BC.
What I found, was that I would drop ES, ST/ET, HE, etc etc etc on the Feds, and what did I get in return?
Dead. No one else would help me, no one focused on targets, escorts wouldn't gun down the FBP BoP w/ high Aux. I might as well have parked the ship, and said, " Ok, this PuG fails, come kill us 15x so we can get this over with. "

When I was on my KDF, I got ES, TT/ST/ET, HE, etc etc from my KDF PuG's. At one point we had 2-3 ppl taking down the whole team, I even chased a cowardly escort around. (aka. don't pick a fight you're not gonna win :p ) Yes, I was packing 2-3 RSP, but that's only 45sec of RSP, leaving me w/ 1:15sec w/o any. I wanted ES3, and you'd be shocked at how often they'd try to burn down my ES3 target, even w/ ES3, ST, HE, and DF active. (dampening field)

I can't say I've ever had much success w/ Fed pvp, at least w/ PuG's. It's either a "screw you " attitude and all about personal dps/#s, or deer in headlights + idiots. Yes, KDF has some of them, but mostly they're skilled enough to wipe out a 15 kill, before Feds. I don't even wanna talk about CnH matches. Those come down to , who is workin towards the objective, and who is think'n it's cracked planet.

If you still wanna PuG, at least get your skills, gear, etc worked out. Then at the very least, you can know you were giving 110%. I've noticed that if you're good, sometimes you get lucky, and the good players will want to keep grouped with you. However, vs a premade, you're at best 50/50 of losing. Later on, it's also about ship/capt makeup as well. But all that's for another forum section.(and already is there)

I'm assuming that EPtS can only be targeted on myself. I wondered that, perhaps I should've read the description, lol. And since I've never bothered using this useless ability...until it became a very useful ability to counter TSS, I honestly didn't know if it would work on an ally. Which, I noticed, you kindly edited out the part where I said that I wasn't sure if it worked or not, but it did make your ball busting more effective, lol. And now I know that I can't use it on an ally.

Does teaming up and Queuing as a team give you any priority for the entire team to get pulled into the same PvP instance??

Yes ofcourse, you will end up with everyone in the same instance. You will not get priority over pug-ers though.
