When this usually reclusive race offer to open diplomatic relations with the Federation, Captain Picard and the U.S.S. Enterprise are quickly ordered to Jarada to negotiate the exchange of Ambassadors.

When the ship arrives, the Jarada seem uncharacteristically friendly. They invite Picard to send down members of his crew and negotiations proceed both quickly and smoothly. Suddenly, however, the Jarada change. They cut off Commander Riker and his away team from the U.S.S. Enterprise and initiate an unprovoked attack on the ship, Now Picard must unravel the aliens' mystery before it's too late for the away team -- and the U.S.S. Enterprise.

From GuildWiki

IMBA (capitalized or not) is an abbreviation for "imbalanced" that is often used within the realm of MMO gaming (especially on message boards) that generally refers to a tactic or ability that is considered overly powerful.

Many Flavor of the Month (FotM) and gimmick builds revolve around one or more "imba" skills that are too powerful to counter without devoting an entire build to the task; as such, gimmick builds tend to roll teams of more-skilled players. Since Guild Wars is touted as a skill-based (not skills-based) game, many players are vocal about imba skills/builds, and bring them to ArenaNet's attention via forum threads/polls.
