There's a distinct divide at the moment between:

1) Trek fans that want the game to respect established series/film canon

2) MMO players looking for something new and interesting to play

Both groups want STO to be a great game but have differing opinions on what makes 'a good game'

The recent debacle over weapon colours is a good example - Most (but not necessarily ALL) Trek fans want the colours to adhere to established canon whereas those players not really that interested in preserving the history of Trek want (not unreasonably) customization.

Obviously, this is a simplification of what's going on and there's grey areas too (I sit in the middle of those two groups) but you can see why there's some conflict on the forums at this time.

It's not all bad though, and there's plenty of people out there that will help - just be prepared to have a thicker skin than you might have otherwise thought necessary...
