I have a Sci Admiral i've played on Advanced since the option came out. I think I was somewhere in the Romulan Sector doing LtCmdr Missions at that point. I never had any real trouble then. I also have no real trouble fighting Klinks with my Lt7 Engineer either. So impossible isn't the word here.
You may want to try this:
I'll position my men using a waypoint somewhere safe and strategically advantageous. Maybe find a valley where I can put two of them on either side, and place phaser turrets and things in the middle.
Next I'll go scout ahead and find some bad guys. I get them with some kind of area of effect weapon and then lead them though the valley. My officers will hit them from both sides with flank attacks while I and the phaser turrets light them up head on.
With my Sci, I'll heal them while they work or i'll keep a sci on hand with no waypoint set to heal. You can do a similar thing on inside maps using hallways. There are definitely tactics available if you no how to use them.
I would like to see a better waypoint and order system for my BO's though. It would be cool to be able to mark mutiple waypoints on the map and have them follow orders set for each waypoint. Maybe in the future?
On another note, if you think the Klingons are too tough, just wait till you meet the borg in Admiral levels. That was tough until I adjusted my tactics to fight them better. It really is all about tactics.
