It's not a MMO anymore than Starcraft or Diablo is a MMO. Just because everyone is connected to the same login server (like in battle.net) not everyone actually plays together in a persistent world/universe, everyone is sectioned off and quartered into tiny instances of either 20 people in sector space, 5 in away missions or regular space missions, and like 20 in fleet actions.
This is more like guildwars than anything. It's not a real MMO, just a mock one.
