I tried it twice and had this problem. Players in New Romulus zone chat made a suggestion and it actually worked for me.
Ignore EVERYTHING except enemies. Just defeat the enemies, get to the end with the shuttle and defeat those enemies. After all enemies on the map are defeated, THEN you rescue prisoners and go click everything. And don't forget to check out the cutscene. There is a option that pops up around the front of the shuttle. Click it and watch for the story.
Warning!! Those huge guys with the helmets (hunter/stalker types, not sure what race they are) are nasty. When I get to the final room I always completely wipe, have to go back and kill another or 2, then respawn and do this until I beat them. What I find strange is some of those guys are named Alpha or Beta. I've seen them around New Romulus and sometimes they are stealthed like a Stalker named enemy. I'm wondering if their names are placeholders for what type of enemy they are or if their names are hunter/stalker and something screws up and renames them with what they were called during testing of season 7.
I would say the difficulty of this mission on NORMAL mode is too high also.
