The entirety of the story line in STO is written from the point of view of ONLY ONE CHOSEN PLAYER CHARACTER at any given moment. As far as the story is concerned, no other player character exists. There is only ONE Vice Admiral (or LG or whatever rank) saving the galaxy at any given time.
I sincerely wish that forum posters would finally and firmly grasp this simple easy concept.
You can call STO whatever sort of "game" type that you can wrap your brain around.
But nothing will change the simple fact that STO has massive amounts of multiple players all online together role playing this game.
