I have teamed with the 12th fleet before and when I was joining them in Elite STF's we was getting them done in around 8-9 mins, Giving the fact I wa not part of their normal team and odds are was holding them back I don't see how they could not get them done in 6 mins. I never did Cure with them so I'm not sure how they run that.
Were you doing infected? because that is the easiest one, and many people can do it quickly. KA is similar. And what you mean is you had 5-6 mins left on the clock for the optional when you finished infected for example. But realize that the clock doesn't start until you kill the cube + spheres or tac cube at the beginning. Basically you're not counting actual time spent in the stf, just the optional clock, so the actual amount of time spend in infected wasn't 9 mins, but more like 10-12 mins.
I mean, just to fly from part to part on the maps takes a couple mins, so it is very unlikely that any stf can be completed in 6 mins, but if you (or your 12th fleet) can, I'd be very interested in seeing a video of this, as it is very impressive. Otherwise though, I'd have to consider this is a complete lie.
In the first video if Infected ground Elite, they clear the optional in 10:15 at break neck speed with no hiccups or deaths. Here is my proof on BS . Watch them all, they have the bragging rights and prove the real fact of high-performance team work.
Again to all new players reading this great thread, NO STF can be beat in 6 minutes. Great ship advice here from the OP.
Watched the video, and Cure was indeed 6 mins. It was very interesting to watch. However even as I admit the 6 mins timer is possible, it is only possible when you are dedicated to beat it as quickly as possible, i.e. all tac, escorts or cruisers, with large amount of AoE.
Under less than these "ideal" conditions I believe it is unlikely. Such as a normal run, with a few sci/eng captains, with a sci ship or two thrown in the mix. It is analogous Bugatti Veyron as it can go up to 250 mph under ideal condition, however it is unlikely that on any given day that anyone will ever do 250 mph.

Indeed, if you queue with a PuG, you'll never get near those times. But with a dedicated team you can easily top those numbers. My vids are from some above average runs but certainly not the fastest (I sucked and blew up twice on The Cure i.e.). Beating the clock isn't the goal, getting prototype salvage is.
But on the topic I'd suggest to farm some Disruptor / Plasma hybrid arrays. Their damage tops Mk XII [Borg] stuff and you sacrifice just 2.5% accuracy.
