As a first attempt try running /SoftwareCursor 1 and see if that makes any difference. If you still notice a problem, switch back to /SoftwareCursor 0, the default.
Are you playing in windowed mode or full screen?
The reason I ask is because the game doesn't do anything special regarding the placement of your mouse; Windows does that itself, STO only tells it which cursor graphic to use (that's why I had you try using a software cursor, the SoftwareCursor command suppresses the windows cursor and tells the game to draw the cursor itself). Try playing in windowed mode, and next time you notice this start to happen, move the mouse outside the bounds of the game window and just move in circles or something. I'm curious to know if the mouse continues to lag when you don't have it over the game. Also make sure you don't click outside the window when doing this, that will cause the game to lose focus, and when does that it doesn't run at full speed.
Also, when you see this lag, is it only the mouse that lags or does the entire game?
