You flew into the big greenish cloud the Gorn ship ejected. That is the BOFF ability Eject Warp Plasma. And you've seen first hand why it is something to avoid. Eject Warp Plasma is a snare type ability which will slow your speed and turning immensely. And it does hull damage which bypasses your shields.

Defense is to not fly into to it or even get near it. It's area of affect it a bit larger then the graphics imply. If are caught in it it, use Hazard Emitters if you have it. Divert full power to your engines (Speed Power profile) and hit Evasive Manuevers to get out of the Warp Plasma asap.
