outnumbered 6-1 against a poorly armed bunch of bears. the troopers had FAR superior equipment,they had blasters,grenades,armoured vehicles,speeders,a fortified base,body armour,better training, more combat experience,and they STILL lost. thats not bad luck,thats shity troopers. 1 fed captain held off an ARMY of primitve humanoids armed with sticks and rocks and killed HUNDREDS of them with JUST a hand phaser.and every other time trek comes up against a primitive culture in combat they ALWAYS win,sure a few redshirts get killed,but MOST make it back alive. from ALL instances where both sides come up against primitve cave men,trek is leading by far in survivability and competance. bad luck?no,bad troopers. id rather have one hand phaser over a REGIMENT of troopers any day of the week.
