Yes, this mission can be annoying at first. It's really the first time you actually need some basic tactics to win. There are several ways to deal with these guys.

I recommend picking up Polarize Hull. It makes you immune to tractor beams. Once they hit you with a tractor beam, hit polarize and then evasive maneuvers to zoom away when the torp spam comes. You can then safely shoot down all the torps as they come at you. You can also try to fly farther away than 5km as that is the tractor beam's maximum range. Having hazard emitters to help with the plasma burn is nice too. Both hazard and polarize will help when fighting borg as well.
