I think it's exactly that design philosophy that's a big part of the issue for me. I don't want any starship combat outside of the introductory sequence to be trivial, and I certainly don't want to have to plough through multiple waves of 'cannon fodder' - it's no fun, and it doesn't feel like Star Trek to me.

I'd far rather have one tough fight in a mission than five trivial ones.

Other people's mileage may of course vary.
