After all, Star Trek encompasses a whole universe of possibilities while many other MMOs are focused on one world, one planet. Exceptions are EVE (among others), but then again in EVE you never get out of your ship, no ground-combat, etc.
All of that needs to be taken into consideration here. Many of us would love to have a wide range of features and possibilities, but much of it is not realistic for an MMO. What we can have is some good questing in a Star Trek themed MMO with the Federation and Klingon Empire, while looking forward to expansion packs to add more content, more factions, and more features over time.
