I have made it to level 5 (almost 6) on my engineer and have yet to get killed, I have been solo thus far and just the last couple levels had been upgrading a few things Mk2 weapons and armor and minor ship upgrades.
But what made the fights against multiple birds of prey and the warships easier was maxing my shields settings, before I started doing that I was getting knocked around pretty good.
I also use special abilities in space combat quite a bit like the one that gives your photons more damage, and also evasive maneuvers has saved me more then a few times.
While I agree the game should explain somethings better, the level of combat difficulty is good. I personally love a good challenge and would hate to be able to one shot everything without any risk to myself.
