I think the main problem most ships have with the instant death torpedo is, that is in fact instant-death, so none of your abilities are saving you if you don't have them active beforehand.

Some fun fact: the instant death torpedo is named a plasma torpedo but does in fact kinetic damage, so cranking up the defenses before it hits with Brace for Impact, Polarize Hull, Emergency Power to Structure does indeed help but only if you have them acitve before the torpedo hits and as you can't see the torpedo coming, it is really a gamble.
