For the torrent downloader tool, it defaults to whereever the downloader executable itself is, which is probably where you have your browser downloads set to go.
The default if you download the game from Steam is:
c:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\star trek online
By the way, it's a good idea to go into the game's properties in Steam and change "Always keep updated" to "Do not keep updated automatically" (the game's launcher does it for you).
