The same complaint has existed in Champions since its closed beta. This is an issue with Cryptic's engine in general, not with STO in particular, and it appears to be either a non-resolvable or particularly stubborn issue.

Either that, or Cryptic's design philosophy is to reward DPS, since they keep adding events that use this mechanic in CO. Ah well, I'm an Escort captain on my main (largely because I knew about this issue beforehand).
