It stands for "Pick Up Group" and refers to getting a random group of people together to run an STF or other event together.

Everyone got it? Left.

'pug' is a more constructive term for a group of newbie players who dont have a clue what they are doing in the team and the mission they are on.

Thanks.

I looked up PUG and STO and got nothing useful. I was unaware it was a general MMO term I hadn't seen it anywhere else.

A team which does not consist of a group who all know each other (a Premade)
in many cases PUG will wipe the floor with premade simply because there is no "everyone remember the plan" stuff.

There are however premade "sitter" teams if you encounter one of these ABORT you can not win
they play the same mission the same way 20+ times a day
