Playing the Starter Campaign this happened. The 3 PC were hidden on the top level of Main Engineering while 1 Enemy was unaware on the bottom level. The Players wanted to give a signal to one another and all 3 to shoot at the exact same time at the Single Enemy. What we ended up doing was all 3 Players rolled for the Task at the same time and we resolved the Attacks separately but at the same time. But it felt kinda clumsy, since Star Trek Adventures doesn't really have a Simultaneous Task mechanic unless it is an opposed Task. Should the Players have Assisted one another and then summed the Damage? It was ok for 3 Players, but my group can sometimes go up to 6 Players, and I don't wanna have to be having all 6 rolling Tasks simultaneously again. What to do in situations like this?
