Communication does help, but it's not particularly necessary in the case that nobody listens. It only really takes one person to interact with all of the different things. The tractor turrets are easily thwarted with polarize hull, or two photon torpedoes. You can get around being shot up a lot by the BoP in the Reactor room by flying beneath the generator. You shouldn't have too much trouble provided there's at least two people by Obisek in the Thaleron Projector room(though I can't imagine where else the team would be).

Sorry, I forgot about the upgrading. You get the Mark XI for the first turn in (Deflector and Engine), which will work with the Mark XI shield you get from "Coliseum". After that, you can upgrade each piece individually through the Engineering Doff missions to get Mark XII.

Boldly Grinding where so many others have grinded before.
This other thread about the Vault has the stats on the set pieces

Then it might be less annoying.
The BoPs don't spawn that often, unless you team isn't taking them out, and the scorpion cloaking is actually to your advantage, as long as your using either deploy-able turrets or Torpedo Spread. Even if you have neither, you wipe out the scorpions faster when they start to or come out of cloak then if they just swarmed around.
