Indeed, I often enjoy going back to take on these missions when I am much higher levels. if my some chance I do get into a session alone, I will often cut loose with everything. But the moment someone of lower level joins, I instantly switch to passive.
Providing hull heals, weapon power boots, shield recharge, cleaning hulls of plasma fire, ect ect. allowing the lower level player character to have the fun of blowing away the enemy ships. Sometimes if the situation warrents, such as 5 birds of prey at level 11, I might tag them once to draw their fire to allow the low level player a chance to finish them off.
but at the same time, I have enjoyed watching that advanced heavy cruiser with 8 beam arrays suddenly open up with Fire at will 3. It's very pretty.
But yes, if you enter a mission with lower leveled players, one who is the higher level, should always, hold back their full might and power.
