You may be underestimating the power of the weapons used. This isn't like fighting medieval knights with modern guns, the technology of the 23rd century isn't too different from the modern 25th century tech you are using. This is a mistake many mods use when balancing TOS ships against TNG or later ships, they shouldn't be cannon fodder. Think of it this way, the modern military has the capability of fielding thermonuclear weapons in the multi-megaton range, indeed the largest ever used was somewhere around 57 MTs IIRC, its easy to forget that the first A-Bomb used in anger was only 13 kilotons and it still destroyed a large portion of a city.
