Happened to me last night. My ship was boarded and I lured the boarders into the Med Bay, where my three crew members were going to pummel them silly. Except I forgot that I had transfered the power from the Med Bay to the Engines. Cue TPK.

Ouch. One of my worst ones was not realizing that level 1 transporters weren't enough for auto drones. That is one of the 3 most humiliating crew deaths I've had (all definitely my fault)

Here are some I've experienced:
●Giant Alien Spiders on Engi B (First jump and...!)
●Killed by Zoltans (On a MANTIS cruiser!)
●Random event dealing 15 hull damage (Oops!)
●Forgetting to turn off Auto-Fire and killing all 4 of your crew after teleporting them over.
What about you? Any stories you've buried out of shame?

dumbest.
