Is PvP only in space or can you have ground combat as well?
Lastly, are you able to start out as a klingon or do you have to get to a certain level before that race is available and re-roll?
PvP isn't free for all, but you can fight klingon against starfleet or klingon vs klingon. There are space and ground pvp scenarios. You have to get to lvl 6 (or complete a specific quest) to unlock the klingon race. A casual player like yourself (I'm in the same boat with 2 kids and my youngest being a 14 mo. old).
It's casual where it needs to be which is what I like. I can hop on for an hour or so and complete a few missions without having to back-trace what I did the last time I was on so I know what I'm supposed to do.
PvP is zoned and has a queue system to join pvp scenarios. I've found that PvP is a little shallow but tremendous fun. PvE missions sometimes feel like a grind (with some missions taking over half an hour to complete with around a dozen different parts to it). All in all, I've found STO to be a great mmo for casual players and great loads of fun. I'm not a fan of star trek movies and all but the game is fun.
