Know your weaknesses, which means find out what makes your ship very vulnerable and compensate. This is pretty easy, first thing first, you are vulnerable to subnucleanic beam (everyone pretty much is). Second, you make a very tempting target during the time interval between the cool down of your tanking abilities, which is a 5 to 10sec window depending on the build. BoPs generally need 2sec to take someone out. There are ways to close those gaps.

You can also hear the bop decloaking and if they're nearby, you can hear them buffing up, and that's your signal to activate emergency power to shields and tactical team.

One last piece of advice, never ever stop/park your starship during a space fight, whatever it takes.
STO is the BEST game ever and the players absolutely LOVE it.
