Elite's abnormally difficult?

Unprepared, you will see the Borg plasma weapons eat through your hull very quickly.
Thanks, I've been doing some of these. Hazard Emitters 2 waiting for burn, I have Plasmas resistance armor (ceramic though, can't afford Neutronium yet) but I don't have polarize hull/Aux-Structural. I need the tractor beam for Khit (nobody can just nuke the probes, I don't see why that's so difficult). I'm also running Tetryon, but considering moving to Polaron for the DPS reduction, even if it doesn't help with torpedoes, my main nemesis. I can't pickup SIFs because I need it for the Plasma resist, only 2 Engineering consoles (Advanced Escort)
As for ground, I almost have the complete MACO 12 set (really excited!) and I don't have a chance to use Hypos most of the time, I just go down in seconds. Getting behind cover has proven marginally effective. I've reviewed my build, and made some appropriate changes, which have helped a bit on the ground, but space is still a wipe. We lost the Kang in Elite Cure Space, and all my groups seem to have a general lack of DPS all around.
I think it is, ultimately, the people I'm running with. I had one STF that went really well today, the rest have been beyond annoying.
