All is explained if you follow the flowchart at the back of the rules precisely. The check to see whether all units are focused only happens AFTER both the edge winner has had an opportunity to strike AND the edge loser has had an opportunity to strike. Even if there are no units in the engagement, both sides have that opportunity.
You just need to be careful that the TST strikes before you get to that check and the Resolves Strike step finishes. For example, if the DS is attacking with two units and strikes with the first, and then the LS strikes and tactics/focuses the other, the Resolves Strike step will finish at that point because everything is focused and TST will not get another opportunity to strike. So you might want to do TST first up in low unit count battles to ensure it gets its strike in.

Thanks, but I'm still not clear what happens if I have no defending units. Can I still strike with the Trandoshans from outside of the engagement?
Yes, you still get a chance to strike and use them then.
