That's because the story missions increase in difficulty as you increase in rank. So, anybody should be able to defeat it as a Lt. just as easily as doing it as a Lt. Cdr. However, some people are clearly having issues beating this thing as an Lt., that's why I suggested the increased rank. Lt. Cdr. ships have more hull strength and extra weapons slots. Plus, your character will have more abilities, you'll have another bridge officer slot and one of your bridge officers will be able to use Lt. abilities. It gives you more options than an Lt. Captain has in the fight. It never hurts to have more options.
