Oh wait. It doesn't. PVP is just a 5-v-5 simulation grind. It has always been disconnected from the rest of the STO experience. It's too bad it's this way, but until losing a ship actually matters (more than waiting 10 seconds to respawn), or until success in PVP can impact the larger game world, it's kinda passe.
I was kinda hoping that having PvP victories bring dilithium rewards to the entire faction of the victor would create some meaning. The normal pvp queues would grant standing and w/e pvp daily type rewards we already get, but the big game-wide events would get loot for everybody.
