It was a true gaming experience (despite some teaming up issues - especially for the KDF), unfortunately; due to the que system and the new gear, it in essence now has become a grindfest to acquire Mk X, Mk XI, and Mk XII gear.

I myself is not fond of the que system to a certain point. I don't mind it being used for events like the Defari event etc.. but the Borg STFs were meant to be epic, as in "Endgame" missions. I just wish those were never offered in a que system, and another alternative que system in Gamma sector be in placed, but thats my opinion.
This right here.

This is the same as WoW chopping up the original Molten Core and turning it from a 40 man raid, into a 20 minute five man. They completely destroyed the idea of endgame content by doing this. The story just halts after the last foray into Fluidic-space, and goes off in wild tangents in differing directions, all the while ignoring the primary story arch.
