I think you are vastly overestimating the value of gear in PvP. You can have the best gear and build possible and still be humiliated by a coordinated team. Conversely, a coordinated team with crappy gear will still beat an uncoordinated PUG wearing the best gear possible. The real problem, as many have stated, is that PvE in STO does absolutely nothing to prepare you for the realities of PvP.
With the exception of Elite STF's and No Win Scenario, there is nothing in the game that requires teamwork. Aside from No Win, there are no missions that really require you to support your teammates.
Both of those things are integral parts of PvP, and Cryptic failed at making it a part of standard gameplay as well.
