I would recommend a slightly different deflector Positron Deflector mk XII Blue [SIF] [Shds]. They can be found quite inexpensively and that [SIF] bonus will give you a decent boost to your hull hit points.
In regards to the plasma damage, there's only so much that can be done.
In regards to your engineering consoles, I recommend using an electroceramic (if fighting plasma/tetryon dealing enemy) and monotanium armor. The monotanium gives a resistance to kinetic damage which can be very useful. (it made a big difference for me)
I also use Hazard Emitters II. Hazard emitters are the only thing that will put out the plasma fire as well as give yourself a good hull heal over time.
On another note, I would check out this thread in regards to spec'ing your escort for damage as well as get the MACO engines to atleast get the 2-pc bonus from the set.
