Since you are in your first ship and just starting out... a little advice:

Use broadsides! I see newbie ships all the time go blasting away with their fore weapons only, trying to constantly keep the enemy to the front. Fly in a lazy circle (i.e. half speed) and blast away with your phasers. When you want to use your torpedo, turn inwards just enough that the button lights up and you can fire.. then go back to circling.

If you can't keep your shields up, reinfoce them. You can do this by clicking on the shield that is going down. If this still isn't enough, rotate around so you are circling the other direction.

If your mission was truly bugged... drop it, get it again and retry.

And you cannot scan, beam or otherwise while you are being shot.
