Tried updating your drivers?

Generally, STO does some weird stuff in terms of rendering and CPU's, but what you're experiencing is pretty extreme... Fun question: if you press escape during the stuttering, so your UI gets replaced by the options menu, does the game still stutter in the background? Won't help you solve it, per se, but will indicate whether it's the UI or just the game in general that's causing trouble.

Other than that, you might want to include your system specs to get some more specific tips. Also, try following the tips in the lag/rubberbanding guide, in the sticky's of this subforum.
