I guess it's time for tumerboy to collect all the problems of shipboard travel into a page on the STO Wiki... This one is also problematic.

I think Cryptic's fundamental problem (and maybe that'S a fundamental problem for all MMOs) is that the player has to occupy a player model somewhere on the map. This is not an RTS where the player is just a camera and "remote controlling" his units. It's also not some kind of cockpit emulator. You have to be an entity in the game world, not a camera.
