I want to feel like there's a living, breathing space out there, teeming with undiscovered life...not feel like I'm in a holodeck simulation with a bad memory buffer.
I (respectfully) disagree. It's not about the feature, but the implementation of it. I imagine they could, right now, shovel in an "expanding sector" exploration space, an Open PvP sector, and a whole number of features that players, numerous and not so numerous, are calling for... but without some thought into putting it in, we'll get another Memory Alpha: Functional but kind of pants and bland, and just about impossible to just tear out and re-implement from scratch. For me, I would prefer they come up with something actually fun and get it right the first time.
This is, of course, entirely my opinion.
