Infected and Khitomer Accord are usually pretty fun (provided I get teamed with people that know what they're doing). Cure is a pain. Maybe I'm missing the strategy, but I just cannot seem to get that mission done no matter who I end up teamed with. Oh, I should mention that I'm talking about elite difficulty in these cases.

My only issues step from the invisible torpedoes that the Borg seem to have. Please, please, PLEASE Cryptic fix this already. People seem to blow up out of nowhere because you never see the Borg's torpedoes coming.

Elite cure can be a breeze. My teams usually kill all the probes and the cube first, clear the map of negvars raptors bops etc. move on to the next, rinse the map once again and continue on the final. Once you get on the last cube your down to a few minutes CC or repel the negvars take out the probes and cube and have an escort fly back to the Kang hail it and then clear the remaining enemy ships

you can avoid the flood of raptor/neg'vars by just destroying all the probes and getting all 3 cubes to around 10%, then blow them all as close togather as you can, you way is far more work and much more likely to cost the bonus(i know, I have done it both ways many times)

If you also didn't know... you can use BOFF abilities normally used on teammates to heal the Kang... i.e. Extend shields, transfer shield strength, hazard emitters, yadda yadda yadda

That can sometimes make a big difference...when all of a sudden you're surrounded by tons of borg raptors but the Kang has full health...

I've failed optional much more often trying to finesse the cubes than just killing them - if you're in a reasonably high DPS team (and it doesn't have to be five escorts either --;), it's probably just as efficient to clear probes then go cube > wave > cube etc. ... heck, if you have lots of DPS, you don't even need to kill all the probes first >.>

And the biggie, Tactical Team - that will vastly improve Kang survivability if you do mess up ...
