I had a similar issue with frame rates when ever I went to star fleet academy. I have an nvidia geforce 540m, which isn't the best for gaming. I would never be able to max out the settings unless I was using a lower resolution, or the game would lag quite a bit. This also occured a lot while playing it in 3d mode. I discovered the troubleshooting section, which is on the very bottom of the video tab in options. If you click on the troubleshooting bar, it will give you more options, such as switching your directx, and also adjusting the amount of your video memory limit. I think auto is the default, but the amount of video memory, is small in auto. You have the option of choosing from 128mb up to 1024mb +. When I changed my video memory to 1024mb, which is the amount I have, it made a world of difference. I am able to play it on 1080p, with most of my settings maxed out. I put all of the details to 200%. I also play on very high quality in 3d, and there is very little if any lag.
