I think the curve is pretty steep in STO, partly because the PvE game doesn't threaten you in any way and never punishes bad choices. To new players, getting instagibbed or seeing people in tiny ships flying like they're indestructible can seem like magic, because the difference between someone who just hit their first 50 in a Tactical cruiser and someone who's spent over two years min-maxing and bleeding dry every last bit of performance from their character is mind-boggling. It's not really well-designed on Cryptic's part but what're you gonna do.
