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.
Those longer missions are part of the episodes, they flow into one another, the shorter ones are the heres XP missions.
