However at Lt CMD-Captain it can be overwhelming and turn the Spawn into a nightmare. Besides the point is too quickly and efficiently finish the mission to allow the maximum number of repeats. Being mobbed at Spawn is not what one would call efficient.
How not so?

Do an escort spider tank with ES1. Po pa shield bat before using ES1 and you will notice a notable decrease is getting your ship whooped.

Then have your escorts scatter volley the mooks.

Really, the close formation groups of ships in this event is just begging to be scatter volleyed. Have the rest of the team also throw in torp spreads.
