Well, some people are using "peak DPS", i.e. what they can sustain on a stationary target just unloading all of their weapons. That's more typical of MMORPGs, where it is less important how agile you are or how quickly you can change targets, and more important how much hurt you can dish out once you get to the target. Here in STO a majority use the "mission DPS" or "strategic DPS" which is not only your firepower but how quick you are and how effectively you can handle multi-target scenarios.
