I thought it was easy in my Odyssey with Borg sets and all sorts of shiny things which is about as topped out as a FED engineer is going to get, but I didn't do nearly so well in my Klingon ship that has less fancy gear.
It's one of those events with so much stuff happening on screen it's hard to judge what it all is at first. Just a jumble of images at first. I won't probably have any real constructive feedback until I've played it a few more days.

I'm not opposed to some stupidly hard version for people who like a challenge, so if they want to add an elite version then by all means, but it was good for what i want. a nice middle length fight that is not going to be ruined by a few. getting 1 shocking player is bad enough in a 5 man. with a 10 man you are guaranteed a couple.
I'd maybe increase its damage output a little, and maybe make the shards a little more of something you need to dispose of quickly.
If you want to have more challenge in game use weaker ships. Use lower grade gear. Don't have any duty officers on active duty. You will probably need to do stuff like that to have the challenge you want because I don't think they will make missions be very hard because not everyone has the best gear and stuff to make missions easier. Also a lot of people who play are not hard core gamers. A lot of people who play also use public queues and if things are made to be very hard most people wont be able to finish the missions with random people.
This. I like a mission that is player friendly enough to not make it undoable with pugs.
Mind... it takes 15-25 mins with pugs, and 5 mins with a premade full mark XII purple team.
Plus this is the event that gets us all that dilithium. We need that for fleets.
