If you, at any time, see a green Borg insignia appear over your vessel, followed by the sound of a Borg transporter effect, activate Tactical Team immediately. If you see all that followed by a red Antiproton Cutting Beam (possessed by Gates and other Elite starships), Hit Tactical Team as well as Hazard Emitters to repair the cutting damage to your hull before you explosively decompress.

I hope this mitigates your frustrations on this occurrence. I, like you, got sick of it after being blasting apart 15km away from a gate that was assaulting me in Khitomer with 100% full hull and shields. Hasn't happened to me since, so far.
There must be many drones inside gates because gates do that at over 15 Km..I know gates can fire at you but you should be able to see the beam ...though we are talking about 15 km.

To make it simple...stf space maps are places where ships pop out of existace for no reason
