Basically the game difficulty ramps up pretty fast when you reach rear admiral 5....
Which is kind of my point - a difficulty curve that's very shallow for 30 or more levels then ramps up steeply at the end is not a very well designed difficulty curve. Ideally, you want a fairly smooth but noticeable progression throughout the game. Certainly, by the time you're 25% of the way to level cap opponents should at least be able to destroy you if you sit still and do nothing while they beat on you.

Besides which, I've read mixed reports on just how tough the Borg are. My main is a Captain, so I guess I'll find out soon.
