Overall I think the engine is probably mostly fine. Add DX11 tessellation, better shaders, and lighting effects. The rest is mostly really poor textures like centersolace said.

I am betting the engine could handle better textures easily and better textures alone would improve things a lot. An easy way to improve them is release a database of all the textures and let the community play with them. Then use the best in the game rewarding contributors with a free ship, dil, or something... For me it would be reward enough to see better textures in game. Though a small credit as voluntary texture artist for portfolio would be nice.

If Skyrim can go from bland to photorealistic with a simple texture mod then imagine how much it could improve STO.
