PLus come to think of it, it is how Star Trek always treated their Admirals in the movies and shows also, so there is a canon source for making the change.
Your talking about a company that gives Star Trek with technology that has limitations that are greater then that found in the Enterprise series. Transporters only capable of ~5km transport range except when beaming to a planet. Ships that cant aft-mount cannons, dual cannons, or dual beam banks (yet have transwarp drive and mobile emitters, and enough defences that the starting vessels can defend themselves against the borg) and the ability to fire quantum torpedos once every 9 seconds.
They are lazy, and rather wow-in-space instead of Star Trek Online like their game says... but its the only thing Star Trek one can play with others these days, thats even 1/100 decent, since Star Fleet Command 3 multiplayer has died.
Nothing short of players boycotting them for 1 month will make them listen, or do more work then is minimally required to keep providing new content. Just look at what they did to klingons. They are now afraid of death. The breen who were formerly silent except when absolutely needed brag like nausicaans, and the romulans act like Klingons.
