I'm trying a new tactical character, and I'm trying to progress through the game on Elite difficulty.
I've done a few missions, and I cannot seem to beat "Stop the Signal" on elite. I just don't have the firepower to take down the Undine dreadnaught at the end.
So, I decided I was too low level, and went to explore the Delta Volanis Cluster. I had a ground mission there and I simply could not defeat the last group of klingons. Not with the crew that I currently have. My crew simply dies way to fast.
If this were end-game I'd say it's my gear or strategy - but I'm Lt. 5 and there simply are not a lot of options for my crew at this time.
So - am I missing some strategy here, or is Elite really supposed to be this hard? Don't take me the wrong way - I don't mind a challenge - but this seems impossible at this point.
