Well when everything goes up together, its not really power creep so much as the game growing.

but when the majority of the game stays static, npc's, and the new npc's have new tricks but are held to the same basic measuring stick as the old ones, but the PC's keep gaining power, abilities, and their ships keep getting tougher and doing more damage, that's power creep.

if the NPC's were getting appropriately harder that it would be justified, well maybe not justified so much as understood as a natural progression of things.
