I found that Borg Neural Blast was useful in the old-school Cure ground portion. You could freeze an incoming elite tactical drone who was in "I AM INVINCIBLE" mode long enough to flee and beam out when all 4 other players ragequit from the STF leaving you behind to get shafted.
Aside from that, Seduce rocks in ground combat to begin with, STF or not.
Caitians' jumping talents are useful for getting behind the forcefield of the first IMR in Khitomer Accord to destroy it, which shaves a biiit of time off the optional as we don't have to run back to that one after we've killed the forcefields.
And I second physical strength vs. Armek. I didn't think to try Physician--I just used Medic. I'll have to try that next time!
