Your right. That plan is a recipe for failure.

See my last post.

P.S. You do not need a pre made with x5 high DPS escorts at all. I will admit though that the plan I described in my last post works most efficiently with two high DPS escorts.

You can do it with one on BOP duty to keep the Kang safe, but it becomes harder to get the optional.

One of the biggest mistakes people make is thinking that guarding Kang means you stay near Kang and attack the incoming enemy ships when the correct way to defend Kang is to destroy the incoming ships before they get near Kang.

When the plan is executed properly with two escorts you never even have to heal Kang. With only one escort if you don't have enough DPS and miss the optional you sometimes have to heal/extend shields on Kang, but you can still easily get the completion.
