You're kidding right? I zerged through those guys just like any other ground combat. Here's a hint, keybind the command to set the team's target to a mouse button, press button, mash 1 and 2, win.
If you're bored you can have your team shoot at him, then you run behind and flank and exploit him in the ass. The only time I ever die in ground combat is when I'm reading forums while pressing 1 and I don't see that I'm standing in 3 plasma fires.
Actually, I think their damage skips shields completely...
Yes, that's true.

Yes, you ignore his squad and his pink doubles and focus on him alone. It takes 1-3 exploits depending on a couple of factors (+/- to you, shield ignoring damage he is taking) to take him down. Rifle butt is your friend, so get in his face, and have a hypo on your bar for when your health gets low.
While I'm still not keen on telepathic attacks in Star Trek, I can always pretend its some other form of shield ignoring damage. After all, I can pretend my BO'ffs are competent.
