I wouldn't say "most". When MMOs mature it's natural that they increase the leveling speed especially when they increase the level cap and add new endgame, but there are still games that have a LOT slower leveling speed than STO. **** and Perfect World for example. It only feels slow when you compare it to WoW that's had 3 expansions already. Of course the illusion of slow leveling is perpetuated by the fact that Miranda is just plain horrible to fly and unless you pick an escort (or C-Store ship) at Lt Commander you won't see much improvement.
