No, it'd be perfectly lag free, because the servers would crash. Not even WoW servers could handle all of STOs people at once in Sol. Servers would be up for 10-15 seconds here and there when people log in, then they'd go down from the mass amount of people. That and if it was one zone, the collision detection would make movement IMPOSSIBLE on the station. Zone down, and boom, your trapped like a rat.
