Your answer lies in Dual Heavy Cannons with Cannon rapid fire ability. Best defense is a good offense.

Approach Keldon. At 10 km, hit tac initiative, high yield torp, AP Alpha, and EptS. At 7 km, hit APB, CRF, tac team, and unload everything on him, including torps. His shields will be down by the time the torps arrive. He should go boom pretty quick. If you take damage, hit Go down fighting to finish him off.

EDIT: Can't remember if you will have some of those capt skills at your level. But I routinely fight the Keldon in one of the Eti Eridani dailies, and I rarely need to use all those buffs.
