I PVP for a variety of reasons, but coming from a competitive first person shooter background, I enjoy the challenge of engaging other similar-minded players on the battle-field. My old quake clan had many members capable of winning in 1 vs. 5+ situations where aim and dodge skill mattered far more than anything else. Although STO is a different animal altogether, its ship-to-ship combat is still much more enjoyable than many other current titles.

I also use PVP as a crucible for build optimization, burning away impurities until the result is the best possible solution.

PVP is also a good way of evaluating the present PVP combat environment and adapting builds accordingly.
