Just an update here, for everyone not yet convinced.

Spheres hitting for 37k, why not? And these guys come in groups!

Now that's arguably "avoidable" by trying to stay in range of only one sphere...

This one however, was dealt by one entity, in the span of about 0.1 second:

Vessel Two of Two Unimatrix 01 deals 2833 (33277) Kinetic Damage to you with Plasma Torpedo - Spread III.

Vessel Two of Two Unimatrix 01 deals 17192 (29498) Kinetic Damage to you with Plasma Torpedo - Spread III.
So, shield damage? adds up to 10494 (47939). Should probably have been higher, as I ran out of shields before it ran out of damage. As you see from kinetic damage, I was hit 4 times. This means there is NO shield resist in STO that could have hept my shields up.

Hull damage? 47129 (98491)....

Now to add to this, this is an invisible attack. I was about 9.5km away, moving at half impulse, and had good resists running. All hits hit within a fraction of a second. This is a perfect one-shot. It is UNAVOIDABLE. (short of never getting in range of the enemy)

Now, a game mechanic that kills you, that you might as well not even try to defend against, because you can't, what's the point of that? Might as well have a random warpcore-explosion built into every ship....
